Butterflies, Bonfires and Baked Potatoes

Wed 15 February 2012  10am – 3pm  Book your place…

Moorland - the Heart of Exmoor
Help remove invasive, young silver birch trees from moorland.  As we burn the wood, we will be cooking baked potatoes in the fire for lunch so please bring a filling to go with it.

This conservation work is to help create areas good for butterflies, and to keep back birch which is encroaching upon the moorland. There will be tool safety talks and full supervision through out the day. If you can’t make the whole day please let us know when booking. When you arrive there will be a 20 minute walk to the bonfire site before we start the work cutting and burning up. Suitable for sensible 8-year-olds and over.

Volunteer helpers should arrive at 9am for briefing before groups arrive from 10am.

You will need to bring

  • Sturdy footwear
  • Gardening clothes including a waterproof and a warm layer.
  • Drink and any food you want to go with a jacket potato.

Meet at the Hopcott top car park (end of tarmac road leading off A39 100yrds opposite Hopcott close), Periton Road, Minehead. View Map.

If you have any problems finding us on the day you can contact Patrick on 07973 727 469 for more directions.
