Attenborough Nature Reserve is a very special place which has been much loved since it was officially declared a Nature Reserve in 1966.  Sir David Attenborough described it as a “lifeline to the natural world”.

You can support our work to provide a haven for wildlife with a plaque in our nature garden, the Willow Peninsula, which is situated at the back of the Attenborough Nature Centre.  The garden is a miniature nature reserve, ideal for families or people with limited mobility and a nature trail has been installed to increase people’s enjoyment and understanding.  A feeding station attracts a great variety of birds and a mini beast hotel provides fabulous accomodation for insects.

A plaque in this garden costs £250.  Please download and complete the Memorial at Attenborough form if you would like to have a memorial plaque at Attenborough or call us at the Centre on 0115 972 1777.  Please return the form with a cheque made payable to Nottinghamshire Wildlife Trust. The plaque will be 12cm by 8cm and will be fixed to a special area on the back of the Nature Centre.

Attenborough Nature Centre’s conference room can also be hired out for private functions in the day time with catering. For more information please check here.

You can make an online donation to support Nottinghamshire Wildife Trust’s local conservation work or leave a legacy. Make a donation.

Create an In Memory page on JustGiving

Raising money in someone’s memory is a special way to celebrate their life. Often this involved asking relatives and friends to make a donation instead of giving flowers.
You can create an In Memory page on JustGiving, where you can tell the story of the person you’re remembering (using words, photos and video) and explain why you’re raising money in their memory.
Your friend’s and family can give to your page easily, safely and securely, wherever and whenever they want to. Together you can create a lasting tribute in memory of your loved one. That’s exactly what Naomi Strachan’s family did and were happy for us to share their experience here.

Mr Tony Maggs also shared his experience with us.
