Family volunteering - Bash and burn at Morte Point, Woolacombe

Can you help us create space for nature? Join the rangers at Morte Point for a day of family Volunteering

  • Booking not needed
  • Free event (admission applies)

We will be cutting back gorse and overgrowth of vegetation to create more space for nature and allow rarer species including maritime grassland and wildflowers, to flourish.

Suitable for children aged 6 and upwards (children under 6 are most welcome but the task is quite physical). All tools and training will be provided. We will be working at Morte Point. The event will run from 10-3pm but you are welcome to come and go as you please.
