Outside the Discovery Centre, there will be a new Community Wildlife Garden, providing:

  • seating and benches to relax and enjoy refreshments from the café 
  • spectacular views of the reserve and the River Rother
  • planters containing rare and endangered species found on the reserve 
  • bug hotels for insects 
  • informative interpretation panels 
  • an amphitheatre with stepped seating 
  • a ramp providing access to and from the Discovery Centre café and paved areas in the garden 
  • bicycle racks 
  • a dog-friendly zone 

We want the local community to be involved and plan to hold events to help decide how the garden will be planted. So if you’re interested, let us know. We’ll also be looking for volunteers!
