28/03/2021 | Explore a rain forest! EVENT UNDER REVIEW DUE TO COVID RESTRICTIONS Easy walk

Walk overview

Yes, we have rainforests on Dartmoor! Temperate rainforest is a rare habitat, rich in biodiversity. We visit one of Dartmoor’s upland oakwoods, Black-a-Tor Copse, lesser known than Wistman’s Wood, more remote and just as charming.

You will learn what makes these places so special and fragile, and consider some of the species they contain, from ferns that grow on tree branches to lichens and mosses that cover almost every surface. Each participant will receive a hand lens (new, packaged Covid-securely and yours to keep) – you’ll be amazed how much more you can see. You will learn the names of two or three species but the day is not so much about absorbing facts as appreciating this very special habitat.

The day involves walking approx. 5 miles, some of it on uneven ground, and a bit of clambering over boulders.

We will be a small group and keep our distance from each other as per government guidelines. Do not come if you have any Covid symptoms or should be self-isolating. Please bring a face mask and hand sanitiser in case of accident or illness.
