A photographic exhibition illustrating the development of the Horspath Wildlife Conservation Area was mounted as part of the conservation exhibition in March 2002 called "Wildlife on Your Doorstep" organised jointly by Oxford City Councilís Countryside Service and the Oxfordshire Nature Conservation Forum. This exhibition was remounted at meetings of the SODC Area Forum, the Shotover Advisory Group, the Shotover Preservation Society, and other local wildlife conservation meetings.
The core of regular experienced conservation volunteers are routinely contacted by e-mail a few days prior to any volunteer days, with a description of the proposed conservation tasks, and occasionally also with attached graphics files. These e-mailings now also extend to students at Oxford Brookes University who have shown interest in this conservation project.
These web pages have been introduced in 2003 to publicise the Wildlife Conservation Area to a wider audience. They are maintained by Alan Simpson as part of his Shotover website www.shotover.org.uk
(He is still hoping that one day someone will enlighten him as to the species of bat, whose photo appears on the main shotover site at www.shotover.org.uk/bat.htm).
