Stowmarket Wildlife Group – Suffolk Wildlife Trust


The Stowmarket group meetings in 2019 covered a very diverse range of subjects centred on the plants and animals of Suffolk. The speakers were informative and often amusing, revealing much about what goes on around us, which is so often unnoticed.

The attendance for the talks was good, and one attracted the biggest audience since the group was established. The wildlife walks were also popular, and most enjoyable.

The programme of events for 2020 is established, and starts after the Christmas and New Year break.
