Covid-19 update - April 2021

Hare by Andy Rouse

We are operating within the current coronavirus guidance restrictions. All of our nature reserves are open for visitors, although our enclosed hides are closed.

National guidance

You can find the latest guidance here:

Maintaining a connection with nature is vital at this time to help us all take good care of our health and wellbeing. We want everyone to be able to relax and enjoy their time with wildlife, so when visiting our reserves please respect our staff and other visitors by giving everyone plenty of space.

Our shops and cafes at Carlton Marshes and Lackford Lakes are now open with restrictions in place. Our hides remain closed. Toilets are open at Carlton Marshes, Lackford Lakes, Knettishall Heath, Bradfield Woods and Redgrave & Lopham Fen.

Group events and activities at our centres are currently restricted to Wild Babies and Wild Tots - but do tune in to our online webinars. Volunteer work parties and indoor volunteering are now continuing with restrictions in place - please talk to your local Trust contact.

Our hides will remain closed until 17th May, unless government advice changes.

How you can help:

We’re working harder than ever to keep our nature reserves open and protect Suffolk's wildlife. You can help by becoming a member, by making a donation and making a purchase via our online shop - all proceeds support Suffolk Wildlife Trust’s work around the county.

Thank you.
