Become a Friend

Join the Friends and support your local nature reserve!

From as little as £3 a month you can become a Friend of the Steyning Downland Scheme and enjoy:

• Exclusive Friends events
• Priority booking for our public events programme
• Friends hands-on volunteer days
• A quarterly e-newsletter with details of how your support is helping
• Being part of the Steyning Downland Scheme community

You’ll be playing an important role in caring for our unique piece of downland, and the rich wildlife it supports. Our Friends provide us with vitally important regular income, enabling us to plan our conservation and educational work months ahead.

We have four membership categories to choose from, each with a minimum monthly donation, although you can give more if you like!

As a Friend, your membership is crucial to our work on the nature reserve, enabling us to:

• Maintain over 4 miles of Rights if Way, plus many more informal footpaths, enjoyed by walkers of all ages
• Repair gates, stiles, fencing and the medieval mill pond
• Care for our grazing herd of Dexter cattle
• Essential conservation work to encourage abundant wildlife
• Run a packed programme of events for all ages, to help bring people closer to nature
• Record local species – of birds, bats, moths and plants – to monitor the biodiversity of the reserve

Thank you for your support!
