We are asking everyone who visits our nature reserves to continue to follow social distancing guidelines. Visitors are also encouraged to check the advice issued on permitted levels of exercise and reasons to travel issued by the government.

As always, on any visit to our nature reserves, please be mindful of the wildlife that lives there and of other visitors. 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.

We encourage everyone to take time out of their day to enjoy wild places, whether that is in their garden, local park or nature reserve. Take a look at some of our ideas for enjoying nature and register for our annual nature challenge, 30 Days Wild, for inspiration and encouragement throughout the month of June!

Tees Valley Wildlife Trust is facing many challenges caused by Covid-19. We are pleased that our nature reserves, which are easily accessible to many communities, have been kept open throughout the lockdown and have become an important part of people’s lives.

We rely completely on donations and membership subscriptions from people in the Tees Valley to manage our sites and keep them available for public use. Please consider supporting us: by making a donation or becoming a member – and a huge thank you to those of you that already support us in this way.

Getting in touch

Please email ([email protected]) 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.
