Drop into our Sweet Briar Marshes exhibition this November

Wednesday 01 November, 2023

Norfolk Wildlife Trust will be sharing the emerging shared vision for its newest nature reserve NWT Sweet Briar Marshes at a series of public drop-in events in November. 


Sketches, maps and design concepts will be on display as part of an exhibition which sets out a long-term vision for how the 90-acre city wildlife haven could evolve. The exhibition will also tell the story of Sweet Briar Marshes so far, and how Norfolk Wildlife Trust has been engaging with local communities and stakeholders to develop the vision.  


Director of Engagement for Norfolk Wildlife Trust, Natalie Bailey, said: “After a brilliant year of getting to know Sweet Briar Marshes and its wonderful wildlife, engaging with communities and collaborating with our landscape architects, we are ready to share our hopes and aspirations for Norfolk’s newest nature reserve! Please do come along if you can.” 


Check out our events page for details of drop-in sessions for Sweet Briar Marshes shared vision update (no need to book) and other events taking place on the reserve.

Don't worry if you can’t make a drop-in session. The exhibition will also be available to view on our website.
