Blackdown Hills Autumn and Winter Countryside Events programme now available!

( Last Updated: 19-08-2009 )

Wrap up warm and discover the wonder of winter in the Blackdown Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

As the autumn begins, explore what the season of mists and mellow fruitfulness has to offer, with mushroom forays and a hunt for wild food.  Learn how to light fires without matches and build shelters in the woods.

Discover how to identify native trees, or hunt for dormouse-nibbled hazelnuts. Gain map reading skills, enjoy a walk to celebrate 60 years of protected landscapes, or make art in the open air.

As the seasons change, enjoy midwinter tales to warm your heart, or make the most of the dark evenings to discover the wonder of the night sky.  Then celebrate the promise of spring with magical stories among the snowdrops, or provide a cosy home for nesting birds.

There are over 50 low-cost or free events in this comprehensive programme of events, which has been produced by The Blackdown Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty team and the Neroche Scheme.  There's something for everyone!

The Autumn/Winter Countryside Events programme runs from the beginning of September to the end of February and is available from local Tourist Information Centres, libraries, pubs and shops. Request a copy by calling 01823 680681, or by emailing blackdownhills@devon.gov.uk or see the full programme online
