Risley Moss Nature Reserve

Parks and openspaces

Welcome to Risley Moss one and all

Did you know our rangers regularly work with primary schools, colleges, universities and uniform groups (such as brownies and clubs)?

Popular subjects range from habitats, wildlife and local history walks and talks to more in depth studies of peatbog ecology and most importantly all of our subjects are fully adaptable and suited for different age groups!

We've also got a classroom to hire that's available for schools and colleges across town. If you're a local business you'll definitely want to use our classroom for meetings or training sessions as you won't find a location this unique and tranquil anywhere else!

For more information please contact us using the details below - we can't wait to hear from you!
