Events range from nature discovery days and bat walks, to opportunities to learn new skills by volunteering, to helping with the management of local nature reserves and wildlife sites. This includes coppicing, pond maintenance, vegetation control and more, to encourage everyone to get out and enjoy the great outdoors.

The two guides, one for the north part of the borough and a second for the south, have been compiled by the Council with local groups including Tadburn Conservation Volunteers, Friends of the Parks, Wilder Romsey and The River Anton River Conservation Association (TARCA).

The north test valley area covers wildlife sites and nature reserves including Anton Lakes, Ladies Walk, Rooksbury Mill Nature Reserve, Harewood Common and Ox Drove Meadow. The south includes Valley Park Woodlands, Tadburn Meadows and Abbotswood Nature Reserves.
