Celebrating the role farmers play in nature

This month the Devon Local Nature Partnership is celebrating the role farmers play in the Nature Recovery Network.

It is promoting events that connect consumers with local farmers throughout June.

One of the events it has already supported was Open Farm Sunday, staged on June 9.

The partnership is including foresters in the celebrations, pointing out 2019 marks the 100th anniversary of the Forestry Commission.

The Royal Forestry Society marked the event with a three-day forestry conference at Dartington.

Devon Local Nature Partnership, also known as Natural Devon, is a collaboration of those working to ensure that a healthy natural environment underpins a high quality of life across the county.

It is currently collating information on Natural Environmental Land Management Scheme pilots across Devon in order to ensure that everyone is aware of them.

A woodland wildlife toolkit is now available to help people manage woodlands for priority species.

The toolkit has been developed by the Bat Conservation Trust, Butterfly Conservation, the Forestry Commission, Natural England, Plantlife, RSPB, Sylva Foundation, and the Woodland Trust.
