Bystock Discovery Day

Bystock Discovery Day 

Nature reserves

DWT's Bystock Pools reserve plays host to a children's discovery and fun day as part of East Devon Heath Week.

Bystock work parties are led by the Nature Reserves Officer every other Tuesday, 10am-3pm. You can do as much or as little as you like. Wear suitable clothes and bring food and drink, but tools and gloves are provided.

Newcomers are always welcome. Please contact Edric Hopkinson (see below) for joining information.

Wildlife demonstration garden 

Our wildlife demonstration garden was set up in 2001 with the gratefully received assistance of our local Quaker group. In what used to be a badly overgrown allotment plot, our volunteers have shown what can be achieved in a space the size of an average garden - fruit and vegetable garden, an insect border and hotel, a compost area and a pond.

From May - August the garden is open on the first Sunday of the month (weather permitting) from 10.15 to 11.30am, Visit the local group website and select the Exmouth wildlife garden page for location details (see below).
