Join us for a FREE fun-packed day for all ages! Discover the amazing Grabbist Ridge, between Dunster and Minehead, which has breath-taking views across Exmoor and the coast.
Our base camp is Dunster National Park Centre - where we have free welcome activities and guided eco walks to Grabbist departing throughout the day.
Light refreshments available. The Dunster Lunch Box will be selling ice cream butterflies especially for the event, and there is a wide range of other outlets in the town.
Rangers from the Crown Estate, the National Trust, and Exmoor National Park Authority will be on hand. Exmoor Conservation Volunteers are kindly helping run the event alongside all the organisations involved. Grabbist Ridge is part of a moorland area where we hope to sponsor a Moorkeeper as part of the Heart of Exmoor scheme. The moorland and coastal heath around here is special for its moorland farming, Exmoor Ponies (on North Hill nearby) and wildlife such as Buzzard, Dartford Warbler, bats, Badger, foxgloves, whortleberry, Glow-worm beetles and the very rare Heath Fritillary butterfly.
