Exmoor courses offering more awareness
EXMOOR National Park Authority has announced details of its Exmoor Awareness one-day courses for tourism providers.
This is the programme's 10th year of helping businesses discover more about Exmoor's special qualities, explore it first hand with expert guides, and improve the visitor experience of the national park.
Dunster Tithe Barn is the focus of the first course on February 28. Those taking part will learn about new opportunities in the great outdoors and how geo-caching, story walks, bush crafts, orienteering and edible walks can enhance outdoor experiences.
After learning in the morning, the afternoon offers an opportunity to put knowledge into practice around Nutcombe Bottom and England's tallest tree.
