The Evergreen 2000 Trust was formed in 1998 and named to celebrate the new millennium. The Trust was formed by, and still consists entirely of, a small group of unpaid volunteers.
Our aim is to help preserve and enhance the public open spaces to the west of Slough, principally to benefit wildlife, but also for the benefit of the wider local community. Wildlife includes roe deer, muntjac, badger, foxes, as well as unusual insects and fungi. Part of the area is the nationally-important Cocksherd Wood, noted for its native bluebells. This area is historically considered run-down and deprived, but it has remarkably beautiful open spaces, owned by Slough Borough Council. The Trust assists the Council to manage 50 acres of this open and woodland space, whilst our friends at BB&O Wildlife Trust manage the adjacent 23-acre Haymill National Nature Reserve.
The Trust members pick up litter, erect signs, create and maintain footpaths and fences, plant trees and bulbs and attempt to prevent tree arson and motorcycle misuse.
Our most recent and challenging project was to transform a derelict half-acre garage site into a butterfly and slow worm reserve with a remarkable variety of wildlife habitats. We are aiming to use this site as an educational resource.
