EXMOOR - Atlantic woodland walk and Rapid Woodland Assessment training - Horner Woods
Come and learn about Exmoor’s Atlantic woodland habitat and how Plantlife, Exmoor National Park and the National Trust are working together to conserve woodlands like Horner.
On our walk you will have a chance to carry out a Rapid Woodland Assessment (RWA). This is an easy-to-use tool that has been developed specially for volunteers and will help us understand the condition of woods across the south west and identify those which have potential to support rare lichens, mosses and liverworts. By taking part you will find out what lichens, mosses and liverworts need to thrive, and the threats that they face.
Afterwards you will be able to carry out Rapid Woodland Assessments independently if you choose to volunteer as part of Plantlife’s project, Building Resilience in South West Woodlands. Meet at 9:45 am in Horner village pay and display car park (TA24 8HY). We aim to be back in the car park for 1 pm in time for a hot drink and refreshments. Places are limited so booking is essential.
