Reptile ramble events in April

With warmer weather on its way, reptiles will be waking from their winter sleep and coming out to bask in the sun.

East Devon District Council countryside team is offering two opportunities to join them on a reptile ramble on the heathland nature reserves at Fire Beacon Hill and Trinity Hill.

The team’s rangers will show you to spot and identify our native snakes and lizards.

Two walks are available:

Wednesday 1 April – Fire Beacon Hill Local Nature Reserve near Sidbury 8.30am – 10.30am

Wednesday 8 April – Trinity Hill Local Nature Reserve near Axminster 8.30am – 10.30am.

To join the ramble booking is essential as places are limited so call 01395 517557 or email.

Meeting points will be confirmed on booking.

The events are free of charge, but donations are welcome. Details of all spring and summer events with East Devon’s countryside team are available online or pick up our new guide from your local tourist information centre, library, selected shops and garden centres.
