This weekend Moor Green Lakes were host to another successful open morning!

The morning is organised by the wonderful Moor Green volunteers. This year it boasted access into the nature reserve! As well as several fun activities for all the family including pond dipping, fungi identification, moth trapping, small mammal trapping, bird ringing and more.

Moor Green Lakes is a beautiful site with its river side walk and plenty of bird watching opportunities. Particularly wintering ducks as we get closer to the season.

If you have been inspired by the open morning or would like to help out then please BECOME A MEMBER. Members will get access to 2 secure viewing hides and contribute to the upkeep of the reserve. You can also join in on our volunteer WORK PARTIES! The next one will be Sunday 11th September where we plan on clearing bramble and willow from the north of Colebrook Lake.

For more information about the reserve, how to become a member and work party dates please follow this link to the website:

About blackwatervalleycountryside

The Blackwater Valley is located on the borders of Hampshire, Surrey and Berkshire and runs for approximately 30km from the source near Aldershot, northwards to Swallowfield. At its confluence it joins the rivers Whitewater and Loddon. The Loddon eventually flows into the River Thames near Reading. Work in the Blackwater Valley is co-ordinated by the Blackwater Valley Countryside Partnership on behalf of the local authorities that border the Valley. Despite being surrounded by urban development the Valley provides an important green corridor for local residents As well as the Blackwater Valley Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI) and a small part of the Basingstoke Canal SSSI, three nature reserves within the Valley catchment and many other areas have been recognised for their ecological importance. The local planning authorities covering the Valley have designated 31 other areas as ‘Wildlife Sites’.
