We have been assessing the Covid-19 situation daily and are constantly reviewing all of our planned events as well as taking sensible steps to protect the health and safety of staff, volunteers and members of the public.


In line with government advice on Coronavirus and reducing social interaction, we are cancelling all Tees Valley Wildlife Trust school visits, events, booked activities and scheduled volunteer tasks until further notice.

We will be reviewing this regularly as the situation develops.

Nature reserves

We are keeping our Nature Reserves open.

Please consider the government’s advice on social distancing when you visit. Regular exercise in large open spaces is recommended as long as you keep a distance from others, our beautiful nature reserves provide the perfect large, open and free spaces to help you continue to do this whilst connecting with the natural world – also an important factor in our wellbeing.

Please bear in mind that we may not be able to give our usual attention to vegetation, pathways and boardwalks during this difficult time. Take extra care and take appropriate clothing and footwear.

Getting in touch

Please email ( rather than telephone if you need to contact us. We may take slightly longer to reply to enquiries, so we appreciate your patience.

We are thinking of all our wonderful members and supporters at this time, and hope you all stay safe.

We recognise how important nature is for our wellbeing, and plan to send out updates for things you can do from home, or in your garden.

We also encourage everyone to engage with us on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter as we will be sharing the sights and sounds of spring.
