About Chelmsford & Central Essex Local Group

The group’s aim is to actively support the work of the RSPB in the local community, and to involve RSPB members and the wider public in the society’s conservation, public affairs, education, fundraising and other activities. We have guided, leisurely walks at local reserves and other sites noted for their diversity of bird species.

So, if you would like to have fun and meet like-minded people, contact us and help make a difference for birds and wildlife.
