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.
