Making a pond

One of the best possible projects for wildlife is to dig a pond in your garden or public space. Here is how!

Hedge Projects

Planting and improving hedges give better habitats, better habitat connections, and better carbon ‘banks’.

DBRC are collecting data on Devon’s hedges to help fill gaps in knowledge about these vital habitats. Have a look at this information about how you can go about surveying hedges in your own parish.

Orchard Projects

Orchards have an enormous value to wildlife. Devon was once famous for its beautiful orchards – these projects could make Teignbridge orchards famous again!
