In light of the coronavirus outbreak, maintaining a connection with the natural world is more important than ever to ensure we're taking good care of our health and wellbeing.
We know that people who spend time in nature are happier and healthier, but it can be difficult to know how to do this safely in the current climate.
It's really important to stay active and exercise where you can. Just a bit of time every day spent in nature can help relieve stress and improve mental wellbeing. If you do want to visit a nature reserve, only head to those close by and always make sure you follow Government guidance on social distancing. We also have more information on our response to coronavirus and accessing our reserves during this time.
Here are some other tips and resources that we hope will help you in the coming weeks.
