EVENTS TO MARK THE FIFTH BIRTHDAY OF NEROCHE!
To mark the end of five years of the Neroche Scheme, there are major activities in the forest at the end of September.
The Woodland Edge Conference will bring together conservation, community and wildlife practitioners from across the UK for two days of debate and reflection, on 29/30 September (see links from Home page for full details).
Then on Saturday 1st October there will be a public open day at the same location (on the edge of the forest at Staple Park Farm, accessed from the centre of Staple Fitzpaine village), offering a range of activities for all the family - green woodworking, bushcraft and nature awareness, moth trapping, guided tours of the veteran oaks, visits to see the Neroche longhorn cattle, and a special debate and discussion on the theme of potential future reintroductions of large mammals to the British countryside.
The Saturday open day starts at 10am and runs to 3pm. Parking is at Staple Park Farm, accessed from the centre of Staple Fitzpaine.
