Please note that, in light of the current health situation and government guidelines, we have cancelled all walks for the moment. We will review the situation regularly and hope to have a programme in place for Spring 2021 if it is safe to do so. 

Conservation workdays for Spring 2021 will be published once we can be confident of being able to offer a continuous run of events. In the meantime please contact Sylvia Hamilton on 01752 788464 or by email at for details of any workdays that are running.


We usually publish an events leaflet three times per year and this is mailed to members at the same time as our magazine. The leaflet contains details of guided walks, visits and all conservation work. You can download the most recent copy of the leaflet by clicking on the link below.

All DPA events are open to the general public as well as members and are provided free of charge. For some events numbers are limited and booking is essential through the DPA office in Princetown (01822 890646).

Don’t forget to check our online calendar for new events not published in the leaflet and recent changes.

If you are intending to join one of the guided walks it is always a good idea to contact the walks leader to check for alternative arrangements in case of bad weather. Dogs are also entirely at the discretion of the walks leader and in any event are expected to be well behaved and fully under control at all times.
