Here at Lower Moss Wood Educational Nature Reserve and Wildlife Hospital we care for and treat around 2000 wildlife casualties per year. Every care is taken to consider the best outcome for the wellbeing of all casualties and our aim is to rehabilitate and release back to the wild where possible.
The Warden Ray Jackson MBE provides educational visits to school parties, childrens groups such as Brownies, Scouts etc, and also adult groups.
We provide volunteering opportunities and also placements for university and college students.
On site we hold a monthly Wildlife Club (term time only). This is a fun and educational club for children aged 6 and over (adults are welcome and encouraged to stay and join in). Activities include willow weaving, pond dipping, bird watching and much more.
Our Trustee/volunteer Ian Daniells proves to be a hit with our Need4Feed scheme. Attending various settings which include schools and nursing homes with our resident birds of prey and offering an informed talk in return for food items for our wildlife casualties.
We are a registered charity no. 1078209 and we rely on public donations and fundraising in order to support our running costs as we receive no government or corporate funding. As part of our fundraising we hold events on site such as Afternoon Tea, Easter Egg Hunt, Bingo Nights and we even get a visit from Father Christmas.
