If you need them, don't forget your reading glasses!


Moor Green Lakes Group is supporting the Blackwater River Festival by providing a self-guided walk around the perimeter of the reserve. Information posters describing conservation activities will be available on public foot paths from Grove Hide along the river Blackwater to the Moor Green Lakes car park for the duration of the festival. A map of the Self-guided Walk is available here

On Sunday 29th September, with the nesting season over, Moor Green Lakes will be opened to the public at the birdfeeder paddock next to Colebrook Hide from 10:00 to 16:00. Volunteers will be available to talk about the reserve, its conservation and its wildlife. We hope to provide guided walks on private paths within the reserve hourly (depending on numbers) between 11:00 and 15:00. Note that dogs cannot be allowed on the reserve (except assistance dogs). We will also have the hides manned on this day allowing visitors to hear more about the Moor Green Lakes Reserve and its role in the Blackwater Valley. A map of the Open Walk is available here

Parking is available at Moor Green Lakes car park and Horseshoe Lakes car park

Members and non-members welcome. If you are not a member please consider joining on the day - just £10
