Help us to care for your local countryside

The Chiltern Society is dedicated to protecting 650 square miles of woodlands and valleys, including London’s closest designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

Becoming a Chiltern Society member is a very simple way to do something practical to protect and preserve the Chilterns landscape, wildlife and heritage. Without our members’ subscriptions, we would not be able to continue our work caring for this very special part of the country.

From as little as £30.00, you can help us continue our mission to conserve this unique rural landscape and in return discover what the Chilterns has to offer.
