The Friends of Portbury Wharf Nature Reserve are a group of wildlife enthusiasts. We are volunteers from the local community and believe that community has a significant role to play in supporting its local nature reserve.
Our aim is to safeguard the nature reserve and its wildlife for future generations. The reserve is an important wildlife and conservation site as well as being a valuable public amenity.
In brief to:
So to achieve our aims, one of key activities is to make information about PWNR and its wildlife widely available.
We are doing this via this website, on our Facebook and Instagram pages and at local events. We also organise nature trails, guided walks and we do illustrated talks. If your group is interested in arranging a walk or a talk please contact us.
Recording the wildlife on the reserve is another of our key activities. We monitor the wildlife by counting the species that visit the reserve. So we can see at a glance how species are faring year on year, we will add these counts to the species pages. You can read more about this at Wildlife Monitoring.
You can show support in a number of ways:
