Finding Nature’s Footprints is providing training opportunities in the North Devon Coast National landscape. The project and partners are working to train people in species identification, wildlife surveying and monitoring techniques that follow already set up and standardised surveys. Project events, including training, can be seen on the main National Landscape events page


Our Coastal Ash Oak and Sycamore woodlands are important sites for Lichens. April Windle from the British Lichen Society introduced us to these fascinating organisms and discovering a new location for a Nationally Scarce species. We’ve now got some work to do looking for others! #Nature #wildlife #lichen #nationallotteryheritagefund #citizenscience

As a partner on the project, we will work alongside Northam Burrows as a great location to train volunteers and survey for wildlife.
