Thank you to everyone who has already donated to our Forest Copse Appeal. With your help, we’re now over three-quarters of the way towards the £110,000 needed to buy three fields adjoining the northern edge of our Ebernoe Common nature reserve.

If you haven't donated already, can you help us reach our target and create more space for wildlife?

Yes, I want to help

In this video, Sam Buckland, our Western Reserves Manager, walks us through the three fields we hope to add to Ebernoe Common. Sam also shares his vision for transforming this land to benefit wildlife, including Nightingales and Dormice.

This is a rare chance to expand one of the UK's most important nature reserves and create new wildlife habitats. We have a limited time to raise the funds for this land purchase. If you have not already donated, please support this amazing opportunity.

    Thank you so much for your donation. It is not on Go Fund Me. This campaign is not just sent to members, it’s also been sent to enews subscribers, posted on our social media, advertised on social media, in our magazine, mentioned in local news, on our website, shared by SWT staff, and via word of mouth.
