Adventurous families wanted for Exmoor Discovery Week 

Local families are invited to an exciting week of outdoor fun and exploration on Exmoor this August.

Exmoor Discovery Week is four 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 Nettlecombe Court, the Heart of Exmoor project and Exmoor National Park.
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 to Thursday 15th August at various locations around Exmoor. It is suitable for children 7 and over, who must be accompanied by an adult.
