The Clare Foundation was delighted to join Chiltern Rangers for a morning of tree planting and the opening, by Countess Howe, the Lord Lieutenant of Buckinghamshire, of their new Community Tree Nursery at Winchmore Hill. The new project was a couple of years in the planning so it was wonderful to see it come to fruition.
Chiltern Rangers’ mission is to enhance the Chilterns’ habitats through conservation, education and community engagement. They work with local communities to provide habitat management in Buckinghamshire and the Chilterns. You can find them in the woodlands, chalk grasslands, commons, ponds and chalk streams. They also manage 13 nature reserves for Buckinghamshire Council.
Their work can only be achieved with the help of volunteers – people of all ages, abilities and backgrounds, plus community organisations, charities, social enterprises, schools and colleges. If you would like to be part of the team, please look at their Get Involved! page for more information.

‘I am delighted that The Clare Foundation has provided a grant and supports John Shaw and his team at Chiltern Rangers. This is a great initiative, and it is community programs and projects like these that makes a difference across Buckinghamshire.’
