Volunteering Opportunities with Prestwood Nature

There are all sorts of ways you can volunteer with Prestwood Nature.

Working on our Sites

We have regular ‘work parties’ at several of our sites during the year. Dates are listed on our events calendar shown alongside here.

There is no need to book – just remember to bring your wellies!

We are also looking for someone who can do some strimming of an area of flower meadow in Holy Trinity Churchyard. The church has a strimmer that can be used and the job should take no more than half a day for a fit person.  Contact us if you are able to help in this way.

Helping at Prestwood Local Nature Reserve

This valuable site on our doorstep is managed by the Chiltern Society

They would like to work with us to establish a small local team of volunteers who will:

  1. Help with practical tasks, such as raking up or cutting scrub, probably about 3 or 4 times a year
  2. Monitoring and recording, either formal surveys or more informally making a note of sightings.
  3. Helping with drawing up the management plan, organising tasks and getting to know the site and what’s there.

If you are interested, please contact us

For more information see also Local Nature Reserve page

Nature Recording and Bio Records

You might like to join the many volunteers who record their sightings and upload them to iRecord.
By recording and sharing what we see, we gather essential information that can contribute to conservation efforts, research, and policy making.
See our Records page for more information.

Helping with our Events

We need:

  • Someone who can keep an eye on what is happening locally to help with co-ordinating our event planning.

  • People who are able to help out with events: manning a stall etc on a one-off basis

Communications

Help us with designing event posters, social media posts etc.
