Leisure Services of Merton Council wish to promote the thirteen Local Nature Reserves of Merton and to provide residents with helpful information about them to increase attendance. A user profile was created by gathering data from the residents of Merton through mail surveys, interviews at the reserves, and surveys from the local schools. Our findings showed a lack of awareness, which led us to create a teacher manual and a public transportation guide. The results also included information useful to the process of applying for future grant funding and a number of suggested improvements to enhance the thirteen nature reserves.
