Let's continue to keep everyone safe

Although most restrictions have been lifted, we would appreciate your co-operation in helping us to keep everyone safe at our nature reserves and in our visitor centres.

We are still committed to doing our best to keep our staff, volunteers and visitors safe and well. Please continue to follow our guidelines so we can all enjoy nature safely.

We ask that our visitors continue to wear a face covering at our sites when indoors, including enclosed hides. Our hand sanitiser stations and screens will also remain in place.

• Please check in via the NHS App at Brockholes, Mere Sands Wood and The Café at Moss Bank Park.

• Maintain two metre social distancing where possible.

• Please wear a face covering whilst moving around indoors and bird hides.

Keeping you safe

The Good to Go accreditation has been awarded to Lancashire Wildlife Trust

We want you to enjoy your visit as much as possible, safe in the knowledge that we're fully compliant with government guidelines about Coronavirus. You can view our organisational risk assessment here.

Brockholes, Mere Sands Wood and The Cafe at Moss Bank Park have been awarded Visit England's 'We're Good to Go' COVID-safe accreditation, and we ask that you please stick to social distancing and hygiene guidelines at all of our nature reserves. Follow any directional signage and wear a face covering indoors - this includes enclosed bird hides.

For the sake of the wildlife that calls our nature reserves home, please take all rubbish home with you, stick to footpaths and only take your four-legged friend to our dog-friendly nature reserves, where they can enjoy the sights and smells on their lead.
