The Exmoor Trust supported a training programme for the Somerset YFC in order to assist the education of young people within Exmoor National Park.
In 2017 / 2018 The Exmoor Trust gave a donation to Exmoor National Park towards the cost of erecting special barn owl boxes in strategic locations within the park. Conservation is something The Exmoor Trust supports safeguarding the habitat of species within the park for the benefit of future generations.
Every year the Exmoor Trust sponsors the Exmoor National Park Annual Hedgelaying Competition. In July 2019 prizes were presented and the winning hedge was laid on Summerings Farm near Wheddon Cross.
