Welcome to Prestwood Nature

There is still time to enter our

AGM and talk by Roger Wilding

on Fascinating Fungi


Tuesday 7th November 7:30 - 9:30 pm


Prestwood Village Hall

All Welcome


Roger’s talk will illustrate the diversity of fungus fruiting bodies in terms of shape and colour and will describe the changes that often occur during their brief appearance.


He does not expect his talk to be a guide to identifying fungi but hopes it will encourage people to share his enthusiasm for these fascinating plants.

Prestwood Nature at Great Missenden Library

Each Wednesday during August this year,  Prestwood Nature joined with the Great Missenden Library to put on a series of demonstrations showing different aspects of local wildlife where children could join in making craft items to take home.  

We had honey bees,  gigantic and tiny plant seeds,  butterfiles and moths,  “Rose” the rescued Noctule bat and racing molluscs.

Alongside are just few of the marvellous photos taken of the events. The complete set can be seen in our Flickr albumPrestwood Nature at Great Missenden Library album by clicking on the Flickr logo alongside.

You just have to be 16 or under and have a camera or smartphone.

Pictures of any wildlife subject can be entered - trees,  plants,  animals,  birds,  insects.

You do not have to be a member of Prestwood Nature to enter but you must be 16 or younger when you took the picture.    For details of how to enter and for our full terms and conditions click here to go to our Photo Competition Page
