Visiting Nature Reserves

Dorset Wildlife Trust own and manage 42 nature reserves in Dorset. These nature reserves are open as usual for visitors. When visiting, please be considerate of others by adhering to Covid-19 Government guidance and practicing social distancing at all times. Please also ensure you close gates behind you, and adhere to dog walking or other safety guidance displayed on signage at the entrance to each nature reserve. You can plan your visit before you go using our nature reserves finder.

We hope that you have an enjoyable visit, and can make the most of the comfort and solace wildlife and wild spaces can bring to boost our mental and physical health at this time.
