Community WildBelt Project

Local Nature Recovery –
Become a Community WildBelt Volunteer

The Community WildBelt project, funded by The National Lottery Heritage Fund, The Rothschild Foundation and Buckinghamshire Council is a pilot project which aims to develop a sustainable approach to delivering joined-up nature conservation at a local level through volunteering. The foundation of the project will be supporting and facilitating volunteers in taking practical and positive action to improve Nature Recovery in their local area.

Initially the project is focussed around the Wendover area and surrounding parishes and we are looking to recruit local volunteers for this exciting new project. No experience necessary, tools and training will be provided. You’ll be working with different parish councils, community groups and private land owners. You may be involved in planting a new orchard, improving the biodiversity of chalk streams, tree planting, creating a wildflower meadow or recording wildlife.

The Community WildBelt project is made possible by The National Lottery Heritage Fund
