The focus of the event is the prevention of damage to the precious heathlands across the County and how those who regularly use these sites can help protect them.

Most heathlands in Dorset have national and international conservation designations to protect the rare habitat and wildlife supported by them.

The Urban Heaths Partnership (UHP), comprises of 14 organisations, including Dorset Police, Dorset & Wiltshire Fire and Rescue, Local Authorities, Natural England, Dorset Wildlife Trust, The Amphibians and Reptiles Conservation Trust, the National Trust, the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds and the Forestry Commission.

The UHP works to protect and enhance Dorset’s heathland work collectively to maintain the county’s precious natural landscape, by carrying out education programmes and proactive prevention activity in schools, the community and on heathlands.

Amy Gallagher, Urban Heaths Partnership Purbeck Area Warden, said: “We welcome everyone who can dedicate a small amount of their time to helping protect these precious areas. If you would like to join us in our mission to protect our beautiful environment, then we would very much like to hear from you. The training we give volunteers is about providing information on the best way to report what they see, and the information the emergency services need to respond to incidents as quickly as possible.”

Residents and visitors to heathlands are asked to follow some simple steps:
