|Welcome to the Henley Wildlife Group web site|
About the group ...
Many lovely wetland plants grow on Mill Meadows but they need a more natural environment in order for them to flourish. Increasingly threatened plants such as Cuckoo Flower, Ragged Robin and Marsh Marigold grow on the Meadows, and Southern Marsh Orchids used to grow there. A wildlife area will enable these plants to spread, and it will provide a home for a variety of invertebrates, and a good feeding place for many resident and migrant birds.
The Henley Wildlife Group organises meetings and work parties to care for the conservation areas in the town and anyone with an interest in nature conservation is welcome to come along. A newsletter will be circulated to members advertising the dates and times, or just click on the Events link on the left of each page. The group is affiliated to TCV (The Conservation Volunteers), formerly the BTCV.
We owe thanks to our local Wildlife Trust, BBOWT. Without their support and guidance the work of HWG and other similar groups in Bucks, Berks and Oxfordshire would be very difficult, if not impossible.
