About us

Through our membership (about 1,400) we reach thousands of individuals whose aims and interests we represent . We support the Park in many different ways raising funds via corporate members, drawing on volunteers from our membership, supporting wildlife  studies and  understanding etc. Membership rates are very modest. If you join us you become eligible for discounts
