Ted Smith is one of the great pioneers of nature conservation, having had a lifetime involvement at both local and national level. His memoir "Trustees for Nature" is an intimate personal account of events and developments in wildlife conservation and of the people involved, against the background of Ted's own life, family and home. Sir David Attenborough, who wrote the foreword to the book, described it as "a very important document in the history of conservation in this country."
"Trustees for Nature" describes the foundation and development of the Lincolnshire Wildlife Trust, including the acquisition and management of a hundred nature reserves across the historic county's varied landscape. The Trust's progress is traced in the context of far reaching changes in national land use policies and practices over more than fifty years.
Also described is the rapid growth nationwide of the County Wildlife Trusts' movement in the late 1950s and in the 1960s, and the conversion of the Society for the Promotion of Nature Reserves into a national association, now the Royal Society of Wildlife Trusts - in all of which Ted played a leading role.
