Have you been asked to join?

As a local charity we employ lots of methods of asking people to become members and make a regular donation to Yorkshire Wildlife Trust.

We do have staff who stand on our nature reserves, in supermarkets and garden centres and we also do a small amount of door-knocking. All of our staff who do this have identification badges and officially branded materials. If you have any concerns at all, please do not hesitate to contact our membership team - Paul, Kate or Steve at York. We are available during normal office hours (9 - 5 Monday to Friday).

If you are approached and have any doubts but would still like to support us, then please sign up online on this secure website, or telephone 01904 659570 during office hours.

Thank you for your support.
