Bovey Tracey Local Group

Bovey Heathfield guided walk

Everyone is welcome to our events held throughout the year!

We are a friendly group who meet to enjoy and learn about the wonderful variety of habitats and wildlife in our local area, and we welcome everyone who attends.  You don't have to be an expert or even a DWT member to participate!

Nature reserves

There are several Devon Wildlife Trust Reserves around Bovey Tracey, all of which are open to the public.  We are always looking for new volunteers to help us maintain and develop these local reserves.

They include Emsworthy Mire (on Dartmoor), Bovey Heathfield, Little Bradley Ponds, Chudleigh Knighton Heath and Teigngrace Meadows.
