We are pleased to announce that the majority of our nature reserves will re-open to visitors from Monday 6th July 2020 (Cwm y Wydden, Coed Pendugwm, Cors Dyfi and Morfa Dyfi will remain closed). Our Reserves Officer, Rob Haigh, has been busy checking all the reserves and prioritising essential work for wildlife and visitor access. There is much still to do but the reserves are looking in good condition and we hope you will enjoy getting back out to them over the coming weeks. Some restrictions may still apply on some sites – please see the relevant reserve page before your visit. We also ask that visitors adhere to social distancing guidance at all times.
Unfortunately, we have had several instances of vandalism, theft and anti-social behaviour on the reserves during lockdown. With many of our staff still furloughed and our volunteers not yet able to return to the work parties, we would ask for your help in reporting anything you see on the reserves that you think we should be made aware of. And, of course, any exciting wildlife records too!
