As well as part of our regular working parties on the first Sunday afternoon of each month, to which everyone is welcome, school children, beavers, cubs and scouts, our own volunteers and those from the Chiltern Society have all been involved in building habitats for wildlife:

Bug city built by 1st Berkhamsted Cubs
Beetle and Bug Hotel created by Chiltern Society Volunteers and opened by MG Leonard, author of the Beetle Boy series of children’s books at the 2019 BerkoFest Book Festival

Hedgehog Hideaway created by 1st Berkhamsted Beavers

Birdboxes made at our Family Birdbox Building events with 1st Berkhamsted Scouts – and now regularly inhabited

 

We keep our bird feeders topped up and hold family Big Garden Birdwatches, reporting back our sightings to the RSPB, with the help of our knowledgeable volunteer ornithologist

 

We conduct bat walks with the help of Herts & Middlesex Wildlife Trust volunteer

 

Our volunteer beekeeper maintains two hives at the top cemetery – a fascinating learning opportunity for visiting children – and produces delicious Rectory Lane Cemetery honey, which we sell. We hold annual Bonkers about Bees events where we bring together beekeepers, enthusiasts and wild bee experts
