The visit starts with an introduction to the nature reserve where you will be greeted by a Wild East Devon ranger who will introduce you to the fascinating nature and history of the wetlands. You will find out how the team work to protect and enhance the reserve’s wildlife and visitors will also have opportunity to quiz the warden about what can be found in the water, reeds and air as well as how the reserve is run.

Your guide will take you on a trail of discovery, well away from any crowds, to behind-the-scenes places where you can feel completely isolated and at ease and learn about the ins and outs of managing an award-winning nature reserve. Those booked on a walk could expect close encounters with insects, butterflies, nesting birds an much more. If the water vole theme is chosen visitors are likely to spot signs of the rare wetlands mammals, your guided walk with the warden includes a tour of the usually inaccessible habitat of the re-introduced water vole along the dramatic Axe Estuary.

Exercise during lockdown is not only good for your physical health but your mental health as well. Now with an easing of the lockdown restrictions Wild East Devon are now able to resume events for one household at a time. Being outdoors in nature is a fantastic tonic - from the gentle movement, letting go of stress, noticing sensations to connecting with nature. With a highly qualified and experienced nature reserve ranger leading the way - learn all about the fascinating variety of wildlife that call the wetlands home, local and natural history of the area, relax and reflect, stay healthy and enjoy this gentle form of exercise and practice mindful walking to aid with gaining greater perspective, clarity and balance.

The price works out at the special rate of just £50 per group
