Exmoor for Families

Whether you’re a bird spotter or a rock-pooler, a stream dipper or a bug hunter - Exmoor is the perfect place for you and your family to enjoy and discover wildlife.
With lots of different habitats to explore including moorland, woodland, rivers and the coast you will be amazed what you might see.
Come along to one of our events, plan your own adventure, or even get involved in a survey and help us find out more about some of the amazing creatures that make Exmoor National Park their home.

Help us find some special species with our Wild Watch project.

Why not join Rangers Rosie and Charlotte on the hunt for crabs, isopods and other marine life in our virtual seashore safari video below.
