Specialist Groups

A number of specialist interest groups are dedicated to recording Somerset’s rich wildlife and varied geology. Between them members have a wealth of knowledge about the natural history of the county and they collect the majority of species records held by SERC. Most also have links with national recording schemes.

Opportunities for Recorders

There is a group to suit every interest and membership is one of the best ways to get actively involved in recording in the county. New members are always welcome and will find invaluable support from a network of fellow enthusiasts.

Most groups hold regular field and indoor meetings where you can learn more about their activities. Many also carry out practical conservation work, and provide help and advice to members of the public and conservation organisations.

SERC directly supports the work of several of the groups and work with them to encourage recording across the county.
