Latest news on visiting Perivale Wood

We are delighted that we have been able to restart activities for members in the reserve. Field meetings, Rangers and conservation work have all restarted and members can come and enjoy a wander around the reserve on one of our regular Open Days. We now have a booking system for all of these to keep numbers manageable and to make sure we keep all visitors and volunteers safe.

To find out more about membership, or to book for any of these events please email us at or call us on 07875 594290.


Perivale Wood is one of Britain’s oldest private nature reserves and a bird sanctuary since 1905. Keeping it safe and intact means that access is restricted to Society members but we have an Open Day each April and many natural history events for the public throughout the year.


If you would like to support Perivale Wood Local Nature Reserve and the work of the Selborne Society, then annual memberships are available from £10 per person, or £15 per couple for the year.
