We are passionate about inspiring everyone in our community, irrespective of age or background, to love and care for wildlife and enjoy the amazing things that can happen when land and water mix.

In addition to encouraging a love of wildlife, we believe it is important to spread the message that 40% of all species rely on and benefit from freshwater wetlands.

For humans, too, the benefits of spending time in or near nature can speed recovery from illness, as well as helping everyone to reduce the stress levels of modern life.

Already a popular recreational amenity, we are in the process of developing an exciting learning and outreach programme on the reserve as part of the new ‘Green lung’ project. This will include the development of a volunteer training programme, citizen science events, school visits programme, youth group activities, a forest school and regular themed-walks, as well as nature-based craft activities and photography events.

Find out more about the Green lung project here.
