Covid-19 update - November 2020

Hare by Andy Rouse

All of our nature reserves remain open, as they did during the first lockdown, although the hides are closed. Maintaining a connection with nature is vital at this time to help us all take good care of our health and wellbeing.

Our visitor centres at Lackford Lakes and Carlton Marshes are still offering a friendly face and takeaway drinks and snacks, and the toilets are open at Carlton Marshes, Lackford Lakes, Redgrave & Lopham Fen and Knettishall Heath.

We'd like everyone to be able to relax and enjoy their time with us, so please respect our staff and other visitors by giving everyone plenty of space.

Although our shops are closed at Carlton Marshes and Lackford Lakes, our online shop remains open, and all proceeds benefit Suffolk's wildlife.

Sadly, group events and activities are cancelled and volunteer work parties are suspended for the time being - but we’ll get back up and running as soon as we’re allowed.

The exception to this is our weekly Wild Babies and Wild Tots groups which are still running, in line with the government guidance that support groups for parents with toddlers and babies can continue during the lockdown period with limited numbers of booked participants and strict social distancing, cleaning and hygiene measures. We will keep this under review as the guidance is updated. All sessions will take place outside.

The latest government guidance can be found here.

We’re working hard to keep our reserves open and doing everything we can to protect Suffolk's wildlife. You can help by becoming a member or by making a donation.

Thank you.
