Welcome to Prestwood Nature
Prestwood Nature Sites
Featured here are two of the places that Prestwood Nature are looking after.
At the Community Day in September 2017, the grass cover was removed from a large area of the meadow and a variety of wild flower seeds were sown. Many germinated well and there was much to see when we celebrated National Meadows Day in July.
The next phase of the work has now started with the commissioning of an information board and installing a new bench.
Situated on the allotment site on Greenlands Road Prestwood, the Pollinator-friendly Garden has now become well established with a wide variety of plants that are attractive to insect pollinators.
It is well worth a visit at all times of year.
John and Val Obee given custody of the Queen’s Award
In 2010, Prestwood Nature were awarded the Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service.
The award consists of a certificate and a glass obilisk. Each year, a member of Prestwood Nature who has given outstanding support to the Association is nominated to look after the award for one year until the next AGM.
This year it was presented to John and Val Obee for their work over many years, serving on the Prestwood Nature Council, leading the work at Boug’s Meadow and many other activities (not forgetting the flapjack!).
Ecological Flora of the Central Chilterns is now completed.
Tony Marshall’s book is a comprehensive survey of plants found in our part of the Chilterns and how they are affected by the ecology of the area.
Published in 46 parts, plus two indices, it can be downloaded free of charge from this website. Click here to visit the download page.
We are the Local Environment Group for the area around Prestwood in Buckinghamshire, including Great Missenden,
