Local nature reserves

Our local nature reserves are for both people and wildlife. They give you a chance to enjoy and learn about nature on your doorstep.

The reserves help to protect some of the city’s best wildlife habitats and geographical features, and make an important contribution to local biodiversity.

Volunteers play an important role in the management of our local nature reserves. If you have some spare time, there are many ways you can help us maintain and improve them.

We offer free guided walks around our local nature reserves to school and community groups who would like to learn more about nature.

Local nature reserves are protected against future development. The status comes with a commitment to protect each site’s wildlife and community value.

We manage the reserves in partnership with local communities, and offer many opportunities for you to get involved.
