What is a Local Nature Reserve?

A Local Nature Reserve is for both people and wildlife. Local Nature Reserve's offer people special opportunities to study or learn about nature or simply to enjoy it.  It is a statutory designation, giving protection to the site and is a confirmation of a local authority's commitment to nature conservation.

Local Nature Reserves in North Warwickshire

North Warwickshire Borough Council has four Local Nature Reserves (LNRs):

The creation of these  4 Local Nature Reserves was made possible through the Wild:LIFE Project (2010-2013) which was funded through the Access to Nature Programme. A funding programme administered by Natural England on behalf of the Big Lottery.

Each Local Nature Reserve has a detailed long term Management Plan that  describes how we will care for the Local Nature Reserve in order to protect and enhance wildlife habitats whilst also encouraging community use and enjoyment.

Our goal is to create sites which are used, managed and valued by the surrounding communities and which provide valuable habitats, increased biodiversity and learning opportunities.

Volunteering and Friends Groups

Warwickshire Wildlife Trust co-ordinates events and volunteer activities on the four Local Nature Reserves.  If you would like to help preserve and care for your local nature reserve through volunteering then please contact Alexis Evans at Warwickshire Wildlife Trust. You can also find out more on our Facebook page.

If you think you would be interested in being part of a group who would make decisions about improvements to one of the sites or if you have further question, ideas, suggestions or information then please contact:
