A brief description about Friends of Paxton Pits Nature Reserve

Supporting one of Cambridgeshire's finest reserves

The Friends helps the Reserve and its visitors through a range of activities such as enhancing habitat, expanding the Reserve, supporting wildlife monitoring, improving visitor facilities, promoting the Reserve and its wildlife


Most of the events organised on the Reserve each year, including the popular Nightingale Festival, are organised by The Friends.

The Friends supports the crucially important Voluntary Warden Scheme - very much the public face of the Reserve. Habitat management through regular winter working parties continues to make an important contribution to the Reserve and, like most of the Friends' activities, it provides a focus for volunteer involvement in the Reserve.

The Friends' funds are raised through sales at the Visitors' Centre, membership subscriptions, donations and at public events to promote the Reserve.

The Friends has a broad membership, including those who visit regularly or occasionally, from near or from afar; those who want to support the Reserve because it's there, and those who want to get involved.
