The Reserve is a vital part of the much larger wintering ground for nearly 140,000 wildfowl and waders. We continue to run the Barnacle Goose Management Scheme working with local farmers to provide suitable disturbance free feeding grounds for the geese. Management at Caerlaverock is all about working with our neighbours and key user groups to ensure the needs of the wildlife exist in harmony with traditional land uses such as farming and fishing.
Our paths have also been undergoing vast improvements. We now have 1km of boardwalk accessing 'The Flooders' and over a 1.5km of all-abilities path at Castlewood.
For further information on our plans for management at Caerlaverock NNR please read the following documents:
The Reserve Story - An introduction to the natural heritage, historical interest, past management and designations which protect the NNR.
The Reserve Plan - This is the final step of the planning process and sets out our key projects for managing the NNR. It is based on the proposals but will take into consideration the comments received during the consultation.
