About Prestwood Nature
We are the Nature Conservation Group for the area around Prestwood, including Great Missenden,
The Hampdens, The Kingshills, North Dean and Speen
Prestwood Nature aims to protect and enhance the quality of the natural environment through the involvement of local people.
Welcome to Prestwood Nature
AGM and talk by Roger Wilding
on Fascinating Fungi
Tuesday 7th November 7:30 - 9:30 pm
Prestwood Village Hall
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.
You just have to be 16 or under and have a camera or smartphone.
