Naturalists' TrustA local society established to promote nature conservation in its area. These trusts are mainly organised on a county basis and some are known as 'nature conservation trusts' or 'trusts for nature conservation'. They deal with local conservation problems and some have considerable nature reserve holdings. The first example was the Norfolk Naturalists' Trust, founded in 1926, and the whole of the United Kingdom is now covered. The Society for the Promotion of Nature Conservation looks after the national interests of the trust movement as a whole.
