BBOWT in West Berkshire

May 11, 2023 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm

The Berkshire Buckinghamshire and Oxfordshire Wildlife Trust (BBOWT) took over the management of West Berkshire Council’s main countryside sites, including Snelsmore and Greenham commons and the Thatcham Nature Discovery Centre, at the beginning of 2014. Simon will be reviewing the way in which the management of the sites has evolved since then and highlighting some of the wildlife and plants that make the sites special.

Simon was Countryside Manager at West Berks Council for nearly 14 years and is one of the Council staff who transferred to BBOWT when it took over the management of the sites. He is now one of the land managers for Berkshire. His lifelong obsession with wildlife, particularly wildflowers, trees, birds and invertebrates, developed largely as a result of growing up in a small village on the edge of Salisbury Plain and then in a small community in the North Wessex Downs on the Hants/Wilts border doing the usual things that youngsters do.
