Community support for the work of our volunteers is vital. If you provide the materials, we will provide the muscle! For example, a donation of £25 in Spring 2022 will provide two timber support posts for the boardwalk so that we can renew and upgrade these well-used sections of the path.  Any size of donation will make a big difference.

Since the coronavirus lockdowns of 2020, Hinksey Heights Nature Trail has been the focus of a sustained restoration and improvement carried out by a highly committed volunteer body drawn from the local community. In 18 months, the Trail has been transformed for the better and won a renewed role as a valuable local amenity for people who like to come and walk, and enjoy the peace of this special place; especially in the challenging months of lockdown. It is also a treasure house of wildlife, including rare habitats and many species of flora and fauna.

In February 2022, we received a Climate Action Heroes award from the High Sherriff of Oxfordshire in recognition of our work.
