Lower Moss Wood in Ollerton has been an educational nature reserve for over 21 years. The wildlife hospital began in 1988, and the number of wildlife casualties admitted has gradually increased, at present totalling around 2000 each year. The education programme has also developed, and in 2010 we replaced our old classroom with a new study centre.
The wood is a nature reserve and Grade B Site of Biological Importance; 18 acres of mixed woodland in the heart of rural Cheshire. The nature reserve is managed to provide different habitats and promote biodiversity. We provide a place for schools, disabled visitors, environmental groups and others to enjoy and learn about the countryside, conservation and the environment. The wildlife hospital is not open for viewing, but visitors learn about the work that takes place there during their trip.
