Volunteers building a craft
East Devon Conservation Volunteers (EDCV)

Our East Devon Conservation Volunteers are the champions of practical work across the district. Under the guidance of our Rangers they work across a variety of habitats, taking in all of our nature reserves apart from Seaton Wetlands, developing new practical skills and an understanding of habitat management techniques.

With an emphasis on practical work, a typical day might include gorse clearance on a heathland site, path cutting in an ancient woodland, or infrastructure maintenance on an urban Community Nature Reserve.

East Devon Conservation Volunteer groups take place on Thursdays and no previous experience is necessary, but a good level of general fitness and a willingness to work outdoors in all weathers is essential.

If you're interested in volunteering, please email and you will be contacted by Amelia to get involved.
