Watchtree Nature Reserve is a fully independent and sustainable charity. We are supported by Memberships, Donations, Events, and our café, as well as our Watchtree Wheelers cycle hire and sales. Every penny that is spent at Watchtree is put back into Watchtree projects and our ongoing mission to make nature accessible for everyone.  Thank you to all that have supported our cause. 

Bigger projects have been helped/funded by grants and funds. 

Grants are usually awarded for specific projects. Some of our main sources of support include: National Lottery through the National Lottery Heritage Fund and the National Lottery Community Fund; People’s Postcode Lottery; and the Landfill Tax Community Fund. Some Local Authorities and Government Agencies and Departments also support some Trusts, usually for specific projects.
