Reserves & events

Our reserves are vital havens for a huge range of species, and special spaces for us all to get closer to nature.

From marshes and heathland to estuaries and cliffs, there is a diverse network of reserves all over the UK. They're a chance for focused conservation work and for you to connect with wildlife, take part in fantastic events and enjoy the great outdoors. 



Following the latest clear instructions from the Government for us all to remain at home, we are closing our reserves to visitors until further notice. Please see our COVID19 updates page to stay up to date with developments at RSPB.
