13. Wild East Devon update

With recent relaxation in rules you can now meet at our nature reserves outdoors either in a group of 6 (from any number of households), or in a group of any size from up to 2 households (a household can include an existing support bubble, if eligible). You must still minimise the number of journeys you make where possible so please only visit one of our reserves if you are part of the local community. Please see below for updates on our reopening plan:

Our ten nature reserves remain open. Residents of East Devon can still use the green, open spaces as part of their permitted daily exercise while observing social distancing measures. We ask all visitors to our reserves to take extra care when making contact with surfaces such as gates.

Our events will resume on 26 April with Bluebell Week. Look out for more info this month!

We will resume volunteer activities on our sites on 12 April. Recruitment of new volunteers is now open. To register your interest, please email

We will be adding daily content to our social media platforms @wildeastdevon so you can stay in the loop with what we’re up to.

We aim to reopen the five Bird Hides at Seaton Wetlands on 12 April, Black Hole Marsh and the Axe Estuary can still be viewed from our open-air viewing facilities in the meantime.

The toilets at Seaton Wetlands will remain open for now, continuing with the more regular cleaning schedule we currently have in place.

The Discovery Hut at Seaton Wetlands remains closed until further notice.

Our Tramper Hire service at Seaton Wetlands will resume on 12 April for select dates. Please contact us if you'd like to hire the Tramper.
