The Wildlife Trust for Birmingham and the Black Country was established in 1980 as the Urban Wildlife Group. On 13 July 1982 we became a registered charity and registered company - the Urban Wildlife Trust Limited. In 2004 we formally adopted The Wildlife Trust for Birmingham and the Black Country Ltd as our name.
