Amphibian and reptile discovery walk – Planet Purbeck Festival

Join Amphibian & Reptile Conservation for a guided forest walk led by Field Officer, James Anderson-Barr, to discover native species on Creech Heath and learn about their ecology. This is a great place to visit to find some truly rare heathland species.

Discover an excellent piece of large heath located in stunning surroundings next to the Purbeck Ridge. The extensive mining use of this site over the years has resulted in a varied landscape, which coupled with the clay substrate, has allowed the formation of many ponds, ditches and slopes which provide wonderful habitat for many species.

These 80 hectares of heath are home to all six native reptile species and five out of the seven native amphibian species including the great crested newt.
