50 not out for Staffordshire Wildlife Trust

The Roaches, probably our most iconic reserve (Kevin Palmer)
It was 1969 when a small band of people launched Staffordshire Wildlife Trust with the aim of looking after wildlife and wild places across the county. 
Since the Trust was formed, it has grown from owning just the one reserve (Loynton Moss) to 30, which includes the sweeping views of The Roaches, in the north of the county, to the diverse and rich landscape of Highgate Common, in the south. 
Today, the charity has a powerful voice for wildlife and people and is the county’s largest nature conservation organisation. It is one of the largest landholders in Staffordshire, with a membership in excess of 15,000 people, with a strong conservation team force and a diverse educational programme.
