Description

Could you survive a day “lost” on the nature reserve? Imagine your plane has crashed in the wooded wilds of Dartmoor; you need to find somewhere safe to build a shelter, make a fire and cook your rations. Survivors are grouped into teams of around 6 people to undertake these woodland challenges. We'll provide materials, help and everything you need, you just need to bring your own rations to cook over the fire and a sense of adventure. This is a great family day out for anyone who wants to play in the woods, whatever their age!

£2 per person

Bat to the future

The Moor than meets the eye Barbastelle Bats project in the Bovey Valley Woods (part of East Dartmmor NNR) is still helping scientists understand more about bats to help with future conservation. Last year researchers from Bristol University led a bat radio tracking project to look at these rare creatures. This summer Dr. Orly Razgour, a research fellow from the University of Southampton has started to survey these East Dartmoor bats as part of her European-wide genetic research project on bat responses to global climate change. So far, Dr. Razgour has gathered information on barbastelles from Morocco to Sweden and, for a few nights in August, she brought her survey equipment to the Bovey Valley Woods.
