"Working together for Nature’s Recovery is essential so that we can support each other and collaborate to achieve greater impact for our environment and communities."
Camilla Burrow
Chief Executive

We are lucky in  Oxfordshire to have a wonderful group of hard-working, passionate, and knowledgeable individuals employed by a variety of organisations (charities, local government, DEFRA bodies, AONBS, businesses), in addition to a large number of volunteer community groups and individuals. An essential part of effective working is knowledge-exchange and networking. This is currently achieved by a variety of formal and informal groups, partnerships and networks, the key ones of which are outlined below.
