“Great to have a beautiful green space in a densely populated city area. Fabulous opportunities for fresh air and nature.” – Oliver S.
Our nature reserves offer refuge to all kinds of wildlife. They’re the perfect place to take a deep breath of fresh air and get lost in nature.
At some locations, there’s also the chance to try your hand at sailing, paddle boarding, angling and windsurfing.
Many of our sites offer rich heritage and a chance to make a difference, getting involved with volunteering activities or joining as a member.
Great days out for the whole family

Where can I Live Wild?
You can find our amazing nature reserves, reservoirs and heritage sites all across our region.
Live Wild all year round
Wherever, and whenever, you visit us, you’ll find something special to see. Here’s what to look out for:
Springing to life – Delicate snowdrops emerge from the ground and migrant swifts return to race across our skies
In full bloom – Wildflowers add colour to the meadows and support our precious pollinators, like the buff-tailed bumblebee
Fall fire – Deciduous trees turn vivid red, orange and yellow. Fungi, such as the waxcap, emerge from the soil
Winter togetherness – Wetland birds like the shoveler flock in great numbers. Starling murmurations take flight, thousands strong
