Summary

Do you enjoy being out in nature? Help us to understand the wildlife at the reserve through monitoring different populations.

Detailed description

What will I be doing?

Helping us to monitor and understand the wildlife that uses the reserve. Some examples of this would be:

·      Big Butterfly Count

·      Dragonfly monitoring

·      Bat surveys

·      Bird recording

·      Hay meadow surveys

·      Water quality monitoring


Do I need to be an Expert?

No! Citizen science is for everyone and we will have activities for all levels of knowledge. Everyone has to start somewhere and you will learn as you go.


How much time do I need to commit?

This really depends on which surveys you choose to get involved with. We will suggest an appropriate survey according to your interests, skill level and availability.


What do I need to bring?

You’ll need to wear old clothes that you don’t mind getting dirty and strong footwear such as walking boots. In the winter the site can be very wet so wellies are advisable. In the summer it gets very hot out in the fields so bring plenty of water to drink, a hat and sun-cream.

About Tewkesbury Nature Reserve

Our Mission

Establish, develop and maintain a healthy and thriving community nature reserve, by protecting, improving, and conserving the natural environment, and enhancing the biodiversity of the site.
Make the reserve accessible to the public as a place for recreation, education, and the promotion of health and wellbeing, while balancing the needs of visitors with those of the natural environment.
Develop the reserve as an outdoor learning environment, and promote an understanding and appreciation of freshwater wetlands, nature and wildlife across all age groups through active community participation.
Reinstate and support natural hydrological processes, re-naturalise watercourses and create new wetland areas, creating new spaces for nature and improving the site’s ability to retain water, and playing a part in reducing flooding.
