Sat 30th January: Haldon Forest near Exeter 10.30 am - 2.30 pm.


Meet in the car park of Haldon Forest Park (entrance at SX 884 849) on the Haldon Racecourse to Dunchideock road, about 1 mile from A38 and the racecourse. Attendees will be able to park here free for this task but must arrive promptly to receive a parking permit. We will then drive to the work site in as few cars as we can.

We will be managing the early Fritillaries breeding area by mainly removing or coppicing tree growth. There will also be some Gorse scrub clearing work. Bring cutting tools - some tools will also be available. Forestry Commission staff should be in attendance.

For winter events bring lunch, a drink, waterproof clothing, stout footwear/boots and gardening gloves. Bring recommended tools if possible though some are usually available on the day. If severe weather is forecast, check with the leader before travelling as an event could be cancelled.
