Spring Woodland Festival: Return of the Flycatcher

At 11am. Help us parade the "King of the Flycatchers" back to his Dartmoor woodland, with colourful artwork made by local school children, in this dramatic celebration. The flycatcher is an iconic species for the nature reserve and our Dartmoor woodlands. These birds have flown thousands of miles from West Africa, alongside many other species, to breed here.

Go on a minibeast hunt, try pond dipping, take part in hands on activities, make wonderful wildlife crafts, get an experts view of the woods, and meet people who are wild about wildlife.

There will be chilled out music, storytelling, and refreshments from 1st Liverton Scouts

There is a charge of £2 per person payable on the day to take part.
