Nature Reserves

Leicestershire and Rutland Wildlife Trust manages 33 nature reserves covering nearly 3,000 acres of valuable wildlife habitats.

From woodland to meadows, wetland to heaths, our nature reserves comprise some of the most important wildlife and geological sites in the counties with 20 being Sites of Special Scientific Interest and 2 designated as National Nature Reserves.

As well as containing wonderfully rich and varied animal and plant species, many extremely rare, the nature reserves are also important places for people to visit and enjoy, and appreciate outstanding wildlife.
