Celebrate a special occasion or the life of a loved one with a commemorative leaf or bird
This elegantly crafted tree at our Fingringhoe Wick Nature Reserve will hold 470 leaves and 30 birds. Each leaf or bird will be engraved to order with the wording of your choice. Leaves are available in bronze, silver and gold.
This is a beautiful way to help raise vital funds to support our conservation work around Essex celebrating any occasion. For example, an engagement, marriage, birthday, Christmas even or remembering a loved one.
With your support through the Tree of Life:
A bronze leaf could help us to buy five sets of coastal clean-up equipment to support running beach cleans at our reserves and help to protect the marine life or buy approximately five bat boxes to go on the reserves.
A silver leaf could help us to buy the materials and support the installation of two coir roll (saltmarsh sausage) structure to help restore saltmarsh and protect the sea walls or fund large bee hotel for solitary bees, these bees can be amazingly effective pollinators.
A gold leaf could help us to allow us to buy approximately 4kg of an insect-focussed native wildflower seed mix or buy a new field gate.
A bird could help us to create or restore a pond or it could enable us to hire the equipment to carry out essential rotovating work in the wet grassland foot drains, which increases organic material in the soil, which then increases invertebrate biomass, which then provides more food for breeding waders and feeding chicks.
Your commemorative leaf or bird will remain in place for a specific duration of time. After this time, you can choose to renew the leaf or bird on the tree, alternatively we can return the commemorative item for you to treasure.
