Rodley Nature Reserve: A Natural Haven in Leeds West
Rodley Nature Reserve is designed to bring wetland wildlife back into the Leeds area and is maintained by an army of volunteers. The Friends of Rodley Nature Reserve also boasts over 300 members and this provides valuable income through membership to keep the Reserve up and running.
Natural England have provided 80% of the cost of the new extension as part of their work on educational access. The larger facility will be able to provide adequate space for schools and other groups who visit the Reserve.
“I had a lovely morning at Rodley Nature Reserve, it is fantastic that Leeds West has this great resource right on the doorstep. I would highly encourage more people to visit; there’s lots to see and do, it’s free of charge and the staff are always friendly and welcoming.
The staff and volunteers do a great job of maintaining the Reserve and it is wonderful to see so many people who are giving up their free time to take care of this facility.”
