Over the past 14 years since it began. LCWO has planted over 1600 trees, created two new nature sites and more.
In 2020, LCWO joined forces with a small group of local residents who had signed up to form a group on the Earthwatch Naturehood platform, and together we created West Oxford Naturehood.
West Oxford Naturehood (WON) is a loosely structured group of local residents with an interest in looking after wildlife in our back gardens, local parks and beyond. Most communication is done via the WON whatsapp group, which West Oxford residents are welcome to join.
The group receives some input from Earthwatch’s Naturehood Programme, and seeks to build on the wildlife work of LCWO and others.
Currently, the group’s main regular activity is a litter pick, but members have also been discussing adopting local parks, built bug hotels and more. We also have kit to borrow to conduct your own wildlife surveys and collect litter.
