About Chichester Local Group

Since 1979 the RSPB Chichester Local Group has been actively supporting the work of the RSPB in the local community, and involving RSPB members and the wider public in the Society’s conservation, public affairs, education, fundraising and other activities. We have zoom presentations and indoor meetings between September – May, as well as regular day trips to local nature reserves.

So, if you would like to have fun and meet like-minded people, contact us and help make a difference for birds and wildlife. Membership is just £10 per year.

We can also give talks on birds, nature and the RSPB to community groups in the local area.
