Cheshire Wildlife Trust has been working for wildlife on your doorstep throughout the region for more than 50 years.
We look after a network of 44 nature reserves with habitats ranging from grasslands and wet meadows to reedbeds, coastal dunes and wetlands. Many of these reserves are managed naturally by our conservation grazing herds of Longhorn and Dexter cattle.
Our reserves provide a refuge for rare species including natterjack toads, great crested newts, the bittern and a wide range of dragonflies and butterflies. Mammals such as otters and water voles are regularly recorded on our reserves, and our Gowy Meadows nature reserve has one of the largest varieties of aquatic invertebrates found anywhere in the UK.
Our work across the region is backed by dozens of events each year, and we inspire thousands of children both at our Bickley Hall Farm HQ and through outreach projects in the classroom.
