Wednesday 15 April 2015
Exmoor House, Dulverton
Exmoor’s woodlands are a precious resource for people and wildlife. We’ll be considering what is involved in the management of our woodlands resources and learning about some of the special wildlife found in our woodlands. Plantlife will be demonstrating how the small things count with a look at the important role that lichens and mosses play in our everyday lives and we will also be looking at evidence of the past found in our woodland with the historic environment team. In the afternoon we’ll be exploring Burridge Woods, one of the woodlands owned and managed by the National Park Authority.

Get involved on Exmoor
Porlock village Hall
Exmoor is more than just pretty views and this session will help us to consider how we, and our visitors, can get more involved in a huge range of ways. In addition to an overview of the myriad of opportunities we’ll find out about WildWatch and learn more about some of the important species the National Park Authority is asking for the public’s help in spotting and recording, and discover how your guests can contribute to providing photographic records of historic monuments.
We’ll also hear about the new National Park Partner scheme which recognises and rewards those businesses that operate with the National Park at heart and we’ll be hearing about new heritage guides offering guided walks in Porlock, Barbrook, Lynton and Lynmouth this year. In the afternoon we will have the opportunity to join the guides on the Porlock Heritage Trail.
