Wander through the Wildlife Zone

Our pop-up nature reserve is alive with hints, tips and hands-on help for anyone who wants to learn about or care for the wildlife on our doorsteps.

There’s so much to learn and discover in the Wildlife Zone. Visit our pop-up nature reserve and peer into a busy beehive to watch honey being produced. Have a go at pond dipping, follow the animal nature trails and get the chance to feel like a bird in our giant bird’s nest! You can discover more about our beautiful butterflies, learn about hedgehogs and how you can help to keep them safe, listen to talks on our Garden Stage from experts in bugs, reptiles, amphibians, and learn how you can make your garden friendly for bumblebees! 

From butterflies to bees, there’s so much for nature lovers to explore in this area. You’ll be able to see a fascinating range of native British species up close, learn from wildlife experts and make a home for bugs and birds.

Look into the past and future through virtual reality to see what our farmland looked like 100 years ago and what it could look like in years to come. Come along to the Wildlife Zone and celebrate our wonderful wildlife, you won’t go home empty-handed.     

BBOWT

BBOWT was founded in 1959 (as the Berks, Bucks & Oxon Naturalist Trust - BBONT) by local ecologists who could see the extent of harm being done to the wonderfully rich natural environment of the three counties. For more than 55 years we have worked with local people to make Berkshire, Buckinghamshire and Oxfordshire rich in wildlife.

BBOWT protect wildlife, look after nature reserves, create living landscapes and provide wildlife advise. They'll be on hand at BBC Countryfile Live to help guide you through our wildlife zone and answer any questions!
