Something to explore every season

Visit one of our nature reserves, and experience the wild wonder of our world.

With more than 80 nature reserves, the Berks, Bucks & Oxon Wildlife Trust can offer something for everyone. Go for a long walk through dappled woodlands, revel in gorgeous displays of spring flowers, catch a glimpse of rare birds and butterflies, or enjoy a family day out.

Spring

After a long, dark winter, celebrate the arrival of spring with a walk through a Trust woodland to enjoy the spring flowers such as bluebells and wood anemones, accompanied by birdsong.

Autumn

You will find some of the most stunning displays of autumn colour on Trust nature reserves. Look more closely and you will also see hundreds of varieties of fascinating fungi from magpie inkcap to King Alfred's cakes.

Fascinating fungi

All the woodlands listed above are great for finding fungi, plus the nature reserves below. Look out for our seasonal fungus forays, where you can learn all about the different species of fungi. See our Events page for more information.

Winter

On a crisp winter's day, wrap up warm and head to a Wildlife Trust nature reserve. Some of our wetland sites are host to impressive numbers of overwintering birds and wildfowl.
