Brandon Marsh Voluntary Conservation Team
The Brandon Marsh Conservation Group was formed in 1968 and management began in areas within the flood plain away from the quarry workings.
Warwickshire Wildlife Trust took over the management of the reserve in 1980, giving it a long-term future, especially when short-term licenses were replaced by a 99-year lease. When the BMCG became the Trust's Brandon Marsh Voluntary Conservation Team in 1984 the development of the reserve accelerated with the building of the first two hides overlooking East Marsh and Teal Pools and the creation of a scrape on the East Marsh.
