Talks, Walks, Visits & Practical Conservation Work
Founded in 1999, Watlington Environment Group is a voluntary association that encourages and helps people to learn about and care for the environment in and around Watlington.
What we do...
The Group runs 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.
Membership of the group is open to all and costs £8.50 per year for an adult and £3.00 for a child for which you get regular newsletters plus free admission to our events. To join, come along to one of our meetings, look out for a membership leaflet at local venues, download an application form or contact us from this site. Most of our activities are also open to non-members.
Join us and get involved in your local environment.
