Fun for all ages

Join the East Devon District Council Countryside rangers during the summer holidays to explore some local habitats and discover more fascinating facts about the world of rockpools and bugs.

Did you know for example that male and female crabs can be identified from the shape of their tail or that crickets have ‘ears’ on their legs?

East Devon's rangers will be leading the rockpool rambles so just turn up at the events and bring a net and bucket if you have them. Events are free but donations are welcome, and will help the team continue the events programme in the future.
