Wardens and Assistant Wardens of a Nature Reserve

Linked to your local reserve, a warden is the main point of contact between the reserve and the Trust staff – our ‘eyes and ears’ on the ground. Wardens help maintain the reserve in accordance with the Management Plan and under the direction of the Trust staff.

Wardens help:-

Maintain safe paths, bridleways, gates and stiles.

Keep fencing and hedges in good order

Keep records of new sightings or the disappearance of species.

Maintain good relationships with the local community.

Conduct a Health and Safety audit every year.

Report to and liaise with your local Wildlife Trust Officer.
