Suffolk Wildlife Trust's network of nature reserves
are spread throughout the county. Each one is special in its own
right, representing a unique fragment of Suffolk's wildlife habitats
- from ancient woodland to flower-rich meadows, coastal shingle
and valley fens.
on the map or list below to find out more about the wildlife and
visitor facilities at each reserve.
With the exception of just a few
sites which are just too fragile to expose to numerous pairs of
feet, all our reserves are open for you to visit. There
is no cost to visit the reserves - they
are Suffolk's natural heritage and there for everyone to enjoy.
But we do hope that a visit to a reserve will inspire you to become
a member of the Trust, to help maintain the reserves and the
wildlife they support.
