COVID-19 Update - National Lockdown
Nature is an essential service, for both the wellbeing of people and for wildlife. It is critical that we continue to deliver conservation work and we also feel it is crucial to keep our reserves as accessible as possible for the local communities in which they sit. Once again, we need nature now more than ever.
This won’t be an easy task for us as a charity, as the lockdown also means we will have to put many of our income streams on pause, including our vital fundraising activities. To all of our members who have stood by our side throughout this, thank you. Please continue to stand by us, and your local wildlife.
Visiting our reserves
Brockholes and our other reserves will remain open, but we do ask that you follow the rules when visiting. This means only in your household or support bubble. You must stick to your local reserves (with some travel permitted to access your local greenspace). Please make sure you keep 2m apart at all times and check for updates on opening times and read more here
Nature is still open, and it is still here for you.
