ABOUT SURREY WILDLIFE TRUST AND NOWER WOOD
Surrey Wildlife Trust manages over 8000ha of land for wildlife across Surrey, including some of the county’s top nature reserves and land belonging to other individuals and organisations. Together with their members and volunteers, the Trust works to protect wildlife across Surrey.
Nower Wood is one of two private educational nature reserves run by the Trust and features classrooms, amenities and acres of beautiful natural surroundings. Whilst it is closed to the general public, The Trust holds regular courses, children’s events and open days at the reserve, as well as hosting school sessions most week days.
The reserve is set in ancient oak woodland, the predominant habitat at Nower Wood is ancient oak woodland which may date back as far as the Domesday Book. In addition to the oak woodland and a few scattered Scots pine, the reserve also contains hazel coppice, a small area of chalk grassland, a small heathland glade, butterfly ride and ponds. A number of bird species can be seen, including sparrowhawk, woodcock, woodpecker (two species) and wood warbler. There is also an assortment of tits as well as treecreepers and nuthatches. Adders are occasionally seen, whilst roe deer, badgers and foxes have all been recorded.
