Pledge for Nature is a new campaign that aims to support and encourage communities in northern Devon to help nature to flourish again – and as partners in the project, we are keen to see as many people as possible get involved.
Individuals, schools, landowners, and businesses are being asked to join seasonal activities to tackle priority issues for nature’s recovery, with an ambition to secure more space and wilder areas in farmland, gardens, and green spaces.
“Activities will include creating flower and insect-rich habitats, planting new woodlands and making our rivers, hedges, gardens, and green spaces better for nature, the local economy, and for combating climate change,” project coordinator Bryony Paul said.
Later in the year, we will be sharing more about how people can Pledge for Nature via our river keeper opportunities.
More information about Pledge for Nature, seasonal activities and how to create your pledge can be found at: www.biosphere.org.uk/pledgefornature. You can view the Pledge Map too and see what other people are doing in your area for nature.
Pledge for Nature is being coordinated by the North Devon Biosphere, a cross sector partnership that is working to protect North Devon’s unique natural environment.
It is financially supported by the National Lottery Heritage Fund, Mardens Devon Cottages, Devon County Council and a successful Crowdfunder.
Everyone taking part is invited to help spread the word about Pledge for Nature by sharing pictures of completed pledges using the hashtag #PledgeforNature via:
