Prestwood Nature

Aims of Prestwood Nature

The primary aim of Prestwood Nature is to: Enhance the quality of the natural environment through the involvement of local people.

We do this by:

  1. Restoring and maintaining sites to preserve natural resources
  2. Guided walks led by knowledgeable members to increase awareness of the natural environment
  3. Arrange talks on subjects of interest to our members
  4. Produce a regular newsletter for members
  5. Maintain records of plant and animal life in order to see how the environment is changing in response to climate change and other pressures

See our Activities page for what’s coming up.
