Wildlife gardening at the Wetlands

Wildlife gardening event on Wednesday 18 February

Anyone with an interest in gardening to benefit wildlife is invited to an event on Wednesday 18 February between 10am and 2pm at the Axe Estuary Wetlands, Seaton.

The East Devon District Council Countryside team will be developing their wildlife garden on the nature reserve and are looking for help with practical hands on tasks such as clearing and planting.

Steve Edmonds, Countryside Team Leader (Sites) said:

Our aim is to encourage a wider range of native insects, invertebrates, birds and mammals to the site by making sure they have a good variety of food sources and plenty of places to shelter. Here’s a great opportunity to pick up some wildlife friendly gardening tips for your own garden, and make bird and bug boxes to take home and see what comes along to use them.

No need to book, just turn up – parking for the Axe Estuary Wetlands is through the Seaton cemetery entrance on the Colyford to Seaton road. This is a free event, but there is a charge for items such as bird boxes if you wish to take them home.
