Talks, Walks, Visits & Practical Conservation Work
Encouraging and helping people to learn about and care for the environment in and around Watlington
What we do...
We run regular practical conservation work parties looking after the Watlington Chalk Pits Local Nature Reserve, Watlington Hill and other local sites.
In 2013 we began a project to study the interesting and complex Watercourses of the parish. This has developed into a substantial project with monitoring, surveying, historic study and, working with various partners, practical work to improve the water quality of the local brooks. See the separate Watercourses Project page for more.
In 2020 we established a Toad Patrol at a local toad migration site to help the toads cross a road to their breeding pond.
We are presently working with Watlington Climate Action Group (WCAG) and others to create a Green Plan for Watlington to fight climate change and encourage biodiversity. Visit https://www.watlingtonclimateaction.org.uk/green-plans for more information.
