3. South Efford Open Day

Devon Wildlife Trust have an Open Day at South Efford Marsh, the latest reserve under their management,  next month; it will be on Sat 14 Jan from 11am to 3pm with guided walks around the site, and hot food and drinks.  Booking is advised, through Dan Smith (see below).

The event is not solely for DWT members, so please do pass on details to anyone involved with the ACA – especially if they were unable to attend the launch event in the summer.  DWT will be happy to see as many local people as possible at the event; it will also be advertised in Aveton Gifford as well as promoted in local press and websites.

If you have any questions about the South Efford event, please don’t hesitate to contact Dan Smith (details below).
