Wild Exmouth spring update 2019

Our Wild Exmouth Ranger Debs Rylands has now started and is putting her roots in the ground!. Please contact her via email drylands@eastdevon.gov.uk

Wild Exmouth is an exciting project that is helping enhance the environment of the town, engaging residents with green spaces and improving access to nature. Look out for exciting community events, volunteer days, campaigns and improved information and mapping over the next three years.

This project is funded by Heritage Lottery Fund, Exmouth Town Council and East Devon District Council.

The project is focussed on the following themes:

Wild at Home: Get planting! From window boxes to allotments, you can help make Exmouth a better place for wildlife. We will be sharing great tips and ideas for nature projects you can do. We want to increase the amount of space for wildlife in the town.

Wild Learning: From rockpool rambles, nightwalks, surveys and tree trails. We will be promoting all types of outdoor events in the town and developing new activities to engage everyone in the great outdoors. A town for people and wildlife.

Wild and Active: Exploring and getting outside is good for all of us. So the project will be facilitating some wonderful new opportunities to connect to nature and to keep healthy. Ideas include practical conservation days, outdoor yoga, wild swimming and even plogging (jogging and picking up litter)!

Wild around Town: With everyone’s help we want to improve the spaces for wildlife and make places easier to access and find. You will see new trees being planted, and wildflower meadows being sown. The whole town will be being mapped to help residents find their nearest breathing place.
