Ways that you can join in with Heart of Exmoor…

To support the sharing of skills we are working with farmers and rangers to help train local apprentices and students in moorland know-how. If you would like to host a moorland management demonstration event, or organise a workshop to share practical knowledge, please call Jason Ball on 01398 322164.
Friendly volunteers are helping us to hear your tales about the local moorland landscape, and archive them for posterity. Please call Faye Balmond on 01398 322164 if you have stories to share.
