Welcome to the Benson Nature Group web site!
Here you will find details of our programme, news, records from our environmental surveys, proposals and plans for future activities, as well as historical data. We cover not only Benson village, but all the Parish of Benson.
This group was established in 2000, based on our first report which was published at that time and distributed free of charge to all residents of the parish. In November 2001, BNG were awarded an OSCA (Oxfordshire Special Conservation Award) for their BNG 2000 Report, which can be accessed via "Publications" tab above.
Our aims are
To record, to enhance and to conserve, the habitats, landscape and wildlife in the parish of Benson, Oxfordshire.
To provide a basis for ongoing monitoring of the ecology of the area.
To disseminate information and stimulate interest amongst all members of the parish.
