Leicestershire and Rutland Wildlife Trust cares for 36 nature reserves covering more than 2,600 acres. 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 two 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.
Leicestershire and Rutland Wildlife Trust received £3,000 from Ralph Johnson, winner of the Leicestershire First Environment Award, with the money being used to further the Trust’s work in the two counties.
