Tree wardens are volunteers who gather information about their local trees, get involved in tree matters and encourage local practical projects related to trees and woods. This is a group formed in response to the 2017 Town Action Commission report.
As part of a joint project between the Environment Agency and Buckingham Town Council, with £5,000 of Buckinghamshire County Council's Buckingham Local Area Forum funding; the River Wardens will take part in regularly monitoring the River Great Ouse. Monitoring is done in a variety of ways, from photographs and water sampling to river restoration.
River Wardens also meet regularly for information sessions, learning more about the river, its health and how to look after it.
If you are interested in taking part, please contact Karen at the Environment Agency: firstname.lastname@example.org
The Town Council is currently looking for volunteers to help alert residents and businesses in the event of flooding in the town.
If you would like to be involved, please email Louise Stubbs at email@example.com and ask to be added to the list of interested people.
