We will be cutting gorse and other scrub to create better conditions for rare butterflies such as the Pearl-bordered Fritillary. We will be building windrows (dead hedges) with the cut scrub, which will also create different habitats for other invertebrates, birds, and small mammals. 

Meet at Hillbridge Farm, near Mary Tavy. For directions and to express your interest in attending contact Megan on the details provided. Please note the site we will be working on is a 10 minute walk away from the parking and meeting spot. Although this path is flat, the site itself is relatively steep so you will need to be reasonably fit. Please wear sturdy boots and bring wellies with you (we may work in one of the wet areas of the site). You will need to bring plenty to drink and a packed lunch if you plan on staying all day.

This is a joint event between the Dartmoor Preservation Association volunteers and the Heritage Funded All the Moor Butterflies project.
