Launch of Natural Devon - Devon’s local nature partnership

A high level partnership to protect and improve Devon’s natural environment is to have its public launch. Natural Devon is holding its inaugural conference Connecting People and Nature on 7th March when a new Devon State of Nature Report will be presented.

South Devon AONB Partnership members have been part of the executive group setting up Natural Devon. A critical role for the Partnership will be to champion Devon’s environment to government, influence policy makers and unlock funding.  The Partnership’s priority themes include green connections, resilient wetlands, wood for good, sustainable seas, farming with nature, outdoor learning, and naturally healthy.
