In the light of the current COVID19 pandemic, we want to let you know about the measures we are taking and how these may affect you when visiting and contacting Nottinghamshire Wildlife Trust.

Our nature reserves are open and remain excellent places to unwind with wildlife, get fresh air, head space and exercise, away from any crowd. Following concerns over the numbers of people congregating at popular destinations we have decided to close the car parks at our Attenborough & Idle Valley. Visitors can still access these reserves on foot via the many pedestrian entrances and visitors should observe social distancing guidelines. Following the latest advice from Government we have closed our temporary take-away cafe services and the buildings and facilities are now closed until further notice. 

We ask that all visitors take sensible precautions in the light of Government guidance and continue to respect and support each other.

In line with Government advice we have cancelled all events, our schools programme and conservation volunteering sessions for four weeks from Friday 20th March. Our team will not be attending any external meetings during this period. These measures will be reviewed regularly as new guidance is issued and we will post regular updates on this site and via our social media channels. From Monday 23rd March the majority of our staff will be working from home and this will be the normal working practice until the current emergency passes. This will make it more difficult to respond promptly to telephone queries so we would prefer you email

Thank you for all your support, and please take extra special care out there.
