These are difficult and unsettling times for all of us. We know that nature can be a powerful force for good in difficult circumstances. As many of you have told us, it can lift our spirits, educate us, inspire us, and provide a space for us to exercise and enjoy fresh air.
We’re trying our best to keep as many of our nature reserves open for as long as possible and we hope that visitors will continue to enjoy these amazing places for wildlife while observing government guidelines on physical distancing.
Following the latest government advice we have made the difficult decision to close all our visitor centres, cafes and shops. This is to prioritise the health and welfare of our staff, volunteers, supporters and members of the public.
However, the Flows Tower and nature trails will remain open to visitors, although we would ask you to follow the government best practice on social distancing and to be considerate of other visitors.
We’ll be updating our reserve webpages and social media with the latest information but in the meantime stay safe, stay well and as always, thank you for your support during this challenging time.
