We want to protect our furry friends so make sure dogs are on leads. Blue-green algae is present and toxic blooms, which can be harmful to your pet, can occur at any time.

Tatton Park's Ranger Team

The Ranger team are responsible for looking after the entire Parkland and its livestock.  This includes the Red and Fallow deer, two flocks of rare breed sheep, about 50 hectares of water and 161 hectares of woodland, including managing the SSSI (Site of Special Scientific Interest) and RAMSAR (an intergovernmental convention for the conservation of wetlands) sites.

The Rangers are passionate about the Parkland and they run lots of initiatives throughout the year to share their knowledge and passion. They manage an active volunteer group, run work experience schemes and offer local businesses the chance to get 'hands on' supporting local conservation. The Rangers can often be seen taking people on wildlife and nature walks, exploring areas of the Parkland which are not normally open to the public and looking at a diverse range of wildlife - everything from bats to fungi! Visit our events listings for more information and to book.
