Exmouth nature reserve opens as part of East Devon Heath Week
Devon Wildlife Trust is running a free open day n conjunction with South West Water and The Big Lottery Fund to highlight some of the amazing wildlife that lives on the heaths of East Devon.
The family friendly open day is being held at Bystock nature reserve on Tuesday, July 26 and runs from 11am until 3pm.
The day is part of East Devon Heath Week which is held each year to encourage East Devon residents to get out and see the fantastic wildlife on their doorstep.
Jo Pullin from Devon Wildlife Trust said:” This stunning little reserve just on the outskirts of the town is a fantastic mixture of woodland, meadows, ponds and heathland, making it a mecca for a wide range of rare and interesting species. Open days make great introductions to sites that perhaps people don’t often visit and this time of the year is perfect for experiencing them at their best.”
On the day there will be guided walks around the reserve, both nature walks and family walks, pond dipping to see the minibeasts, bushcraft, storytelling and nest box making. There will also be a practical task for adults to partake in which starts at 10am.
Those wishing to go on one of the walks they should book on 01392 279244.
Parking is at the north entrance to the reserve. For more information about how to get there and other East Devon Heath Week events visit the Devon Wildlife Trust site
