News and events

ONCF keeps its members up to date of events happening in Oxfordshire with regards to nature conservation and of decisions taken at national and international level that may have implications for conservation.

We have 3 main methods of communication:


The Bulletin is a free weekly email of whatís happening in the conservation world.


Itís for anyone who works, volunteers or is simply interested in nature conservation.

It provides up to date information including, local events, walks, talks, situations vacant, useful information, offers of or requests for help relating to Oxfordshire. If you would like to receive the free Bulletin, then please let us know and we will add you to our weekly email list. Click here to view a recent sample of the bulletin.

The bulletin is now 8 years old and is currently being evaluated. You  can download a copy of the questionnaire and the raw data that has been collated. A copy of the evaluation will be uploaded shortly.

If you would like to submit an article relating to Oxfordshire’s environment, then please email us by Wednesday for entry on Thursday’s Bulletin, subject to the editor’s discretion. Please submit your article or event by email and use the following format:
Day and time, TITLE OF EVENT, Description (max 100 words) contact name, telephone number or email address. (Font, Times New Roman pt12)

The bulletin goes out in a simple text format this means that logos and special formatting cannot be accepted. We reserve the right to edit all articles. Most articles are posted twice prior to the event.
