Sussex Wildlife Trust response to Coronavirus

We have been assessing the Covid-19 situation daily and are constantly reviewing all of our planned events, taking sensible steps to protect the health and safety of staff, volunteers and members of the public.


In light of the updated Government advice regarding Covid-19, all Sussex Wildlife Trust upcoming events are cancelled until further notice. This includes public and members events as well as volunteer work parties and school visits. We will be reviewing this regularly as the situation develops.

Nature reserves

Following the new Government guidelines we can confirm that Sussex Wildlife Trust's nature reserves remain open, although all visitor centres and information offices closed.
We would ask that all visitors follow strict social distancing guidelines during their visit to ensure their safety and the safety of those around them. Please also respect the need to keep dogs on their leads at all times to protect ground nesting birds and other wildlife. 

Important. Please note that dogs (except guide dogs) are not allowed at Woods Mill nature reserve at any time.
Please note that some council owned car parks remain closed at this time. This is outside of Sussex Wildlife Trust control so please take this into consideration if planning a visit.

Getting in touch

Please email rather than telephone if you need to get in touch with the Sussex Wildlife Trust. We may take slightly longer to reply to enquiries, so we appreciate your patience.

We are thinking of all our wonderful members and supporters at this time, and hope you all stay safe.

We recognise how important nature is for our wellbeing, and plan to send out regular updates for things you can do from home, or in your garden. We also encourage everyone to engage with us on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter as we will be sharing the sights and sounds of spring.
