About the Fleet Pond Society
The Fleet Pond Society is the voluntary group that exists to help protect and manage Fleet Pond Nature Reserve.
The Fleet Pond restoration work is run in partnership between Hart District Council, Fleet Pond Society, MoD, Natural England and the Environment Agency.
Volunteers and rangers work to maintain the diversity of wildlife habitat at the Reserve. This includes keeping the open heath and marsh areas free of invasive species; clearing footpaths of overhanging vegetation; repairing fences and strengthening the banks of streams against erosion.
There are many ways supporters can help maintain the nature reserve and to fund the society's future conservation projects.
