Origins of the Trust
Dr M E Bradshaw’s Teesdale Special Flora Research and Conservation Trust (‘Teesdale Special Flora’) was established as a Trust by Margaret Bradshaw in 2017.
In 2020, the trust became a registered company limited by guarantee (No. 12436150) and a registered charity (No. 118828).
The aims of the trust are:
– to promote, for the public benefit, the protection, conservation and improvement of the physical and natural environment and biodiversity
– to advance the education of the public in the conservation, protection and improvement of the physical and natural environment.
In practice, this includes conducting botanical surveys and sharing the findings with land managers and agencies, supporting the Upper Teesdale Botany Group and encouraging interest through guided walks, lectures and exhibitions.
