What We Do

The primary aim of the Trust is to identify, survey and record, promote and protect the geology and landscape of Herefordshire and Worcestershire. We regularly have consultants and volunteers working in the field surveying any features of interest.

One of the biggest tasks undertaken by the Trust is to raise awareness of our Earth Heritage and why it is important. We do this by various means including publishing trail guides and information leaflets, running Rock and  Fossil Roadshows, holding open days, organising Fun Days for schools and families and involvement in many other community activities. Promotion of our work is done through this website, radio interviews, newspaper and magazine features as well a regular walks and talks.

The strong links with other heritage and natural features are recognised by the Trust and highlighted in our trail guides and publications, which include walks around geological sites through to building stones and landscapes.

Walking Festivals
The Trust takes part in walking festivals in the two counties, leading guided walks over some of the regions most ancient and beautiful landscapes such as The Malvern Hills.

Rock and Fossil Roadshows & Fun Days
Some of the most popular community activities provided by the Trust are the ‘Rock and Fossil Roadshows’ and ‘Family Fun Days’. The Roadshows and Fun Days visit schools, museums and heritage centres with a variety of games and activities designed to be both fun and educational. The children enjoy themselves and parents are happy to find out more so that they can answer their children’s questions, and their own!

More information about past projects involving Rock and Fossil Roadshows is available in our Past Projects section. Fort information on current events, visit our Diary Dates section.
