Flora and fauna

Stow Maries Great War Aerodrome works in partnership with Natural England to improve and manage our ecology. As participants in their Entry and Higher level Stewardship schemes, we work to carefully manage the site to get the very best habitats for our wildlife.

The team at Stow Maries has planted 5,500 mixed broadleaf, native, woodland trees  on the site.

Some of the mammals and reptiles to be found at the site are:

  • Hares
  • Grass snakes
  • Adders
  • Bats
  • Slow worms
  • Common lizards
  • Deer

Many schools and students regularly visit the site as part of their studies. We have the capacity for formal and informal learning. To organise a wildlife tour or talk please contact us.
