Why not get the whole family a John Muir Award?Exmoor Discovery Week is 4 days of environmental adventures, conservation challenges and moorland expeditions. The course is organised and led by local nature experts from the Field Studies Council at the Nettlecombe Court, the Heart of Exmoor scheme and Exmoor National Park Authority.

Families will take part in a series of adventures, including exploring ancient trees, barefoot bog walking, bracken bashing and butterfly surveys. Activities are designed around achieving the John Muir Discovery Award, an environmental award focusing on discovering, exploring and conserving wild places.

Lucy Hellier from Nettlecombe Court says: “Exmoor Discovery Week is always a great few days and an absolute bargain at £25 per family, thanks to support from the Heart of Exmoor project. If your family loves getting muddy and enjoying the great outdoors then this week is definitely for you”.

Exmoor Discovery Week runs from Monday 12th – Thursday 15th August at various locations around Exmoor. It is suitable for children 7 and over, who must be accompanied by an adult. For more information or to book please contact Lucy Hellier on 01984 640320 or email lucy.nc@field-studies-council.org. Only 25 places are available, so book now to avoid disappointment.
