A Volunteering Opportunity

Are you enthusiastic about wildlife?

Keen to enhance the environment that you live in?

Have a few hours to spare?

Then we’d like to hear from you.

We are currently looking for volunteers to assist us with a number of upcoming projects including:

Improving habitats at Allens Field

Putting up swift and other bird nest boxes

Surveying for bats and other creatures

Creating more wildflower areas

Developing and managing a program of fun family activities

Working with local councils and other groups to improve our biodiversity

If you are able to help with any of these areas or other ideas that may evolve over time then we’d love to hear from you, no matter how much time you think you can spare or how little experience you think you have - we are also enthusiastic volunteers, learning as we go!

Email ascot.wildlife@gmail.com to order your copy of our new booklet!

During the periods of lock-down people have become much more conscious of wildlife and nature. The healing properties of nature have been expressed on television and in literature as well as experienced by many. As people have escaped the confines of their homes for exercise outside, they have been able to embrace and become curious about the world they find outside in their area. This booklet, “Wildlife in Ascot - Who shares your garden?” has 40 pages of information with local colour photographs and some original drawings. It is designed to start people off on a journey of discovery. We hope that it is useful to identify animals and also as a guide on how to help our local wildlife.
