Teesdale Special Flora Trust aims
to promote, for the public benefit, the protection, conservation and improvement of the physical and natural environment and biodiversity
to advance the education of the public in the conservation, protection and improvement of the physical and natural environment
In practice, this includes conducting botanical surveys and sharing the findings with land managers and agencies, supporting the Upper Teesdale Botany Group, and encouraging interest through guided walks, lectures and exhibitions.
The Trust is working hard to raise awareness of the fragility of our special flora and the importance of protecting it.
Teesdale Special Flora Trust Management
The Trust and the Upper Teesdale Botany Group are entirely managed and run by volunteers.
The Trustees and representatives of the UTBG meet regularly.
In addition to the Board, we have a number of smaller management groups who plan and coordinate the work of the Upper Teesdale Botany Group, projects and the Survey.
