The Wolseley Centre and Nature Reserve

Staffordshire Wildlife Trust’s HQ, The Wolseley Centre, is one of the county’s hidden gems and it's completely free to visit – so why not make a date in your diary to come and see us this month? The Visitor Centre underwent a revamp that launched in May 2019 featuring a new-look gift shop, introduction of a café that overlooks swan lake, improved facilities and later on in the year, the opening of a state of the art learning pod. A variety of wildlife themed events from photography courses to mini beast hunting are run at the centre throughout the year aimed at a range of ages.
