There will be an event with experts from North Devon’s Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) Team. As part of the Coastal Heritage project, scrub and grass will be cleared from the remains of the RAF Northam Radar station and a new information panel installed. Volunteers can help with the “finding RAF Northam” project on Wednesday 15th January from 10.30am – 4pm.
The events are a great opportunity to join other members of the community and help protect the unique environment that makes the burrows a haven for wildlife and rare plant species drawing visitors and acclaim from far and wide.
Northam Burrow’s Lead Ranger Mike Day said: “Volunteering makes an enormous contribution to the management of Northam Burrows and we are always very grateful for all the help we receive. While the work helps to keep the park in good condition for plants and wildlife it’s also a great opportunity to get outdoors, meet like minded people, keep fit and learn new skills.”
Volunteers should bring suitable clothing and footwear, and a packed lunch is also advisable. There will be plenty of tea and coffee, and tools will be provided. If you are planning to come please let the Rangers know so they can arrange enough tools and refreshments for everyone.
