Road verges are an important wildlife resource and an integral part of Devon's heritage. On behalf of the North Devon Biosphere, the Tarka Country Trust is delivering the “Life on the Verge – Biosphere” project.
Over three years, it will help community groups in the Biosphere to identify and ‘adopt’ local verges, and manage them for wildlife and community benefit. Volunteers will be trained in biological recording and, through DCC’s basic Highway Safety Awareness Training course, to work safely by the roadside.
Clare Manning has just been appointed as the Project Coordinator.
