The Bure Valley Living Landscape has a number of important wetlands at its heart, including NWT Ranworth Broad
and NWT Upton Broad and Marshes
. These two nature reserves comprise grazing marshes, fen, reedbed, wet woodland and open water which support a large number of plants and animals. The areas surrounding these reserves include rivers, scrub, woodland, and farmland, all of which are also vital habitats for many species of wildlife.
