On the nature trail

Do you know just how many nature reserves and wildlife events are available locally? You will be able to find out on the Berks, Bucks and Oxon Wildlife Trust (BBOWT) stall.

BBOWT cares for more than 80 nature reserves, which provide protection for some of our rarest species of animals and plants. These reserves give people the opportunity to enjoy and appreciate the rich variety of habitats which were once widespread in our counties.

BBOWT is one of 47 local trusts which form The Wildlife Trusts network, dedicated to the achievement of a United Kingdom richer in wildlife. The Wildlife Trusts collectively care for more than 2,400 nature reserves and between them have more than 800,000 members

Staff will be chatting to visitors about the local nature reserves, the children’s watch club, membership of the trust and wildlife gardening.
