Our AONB Partnership July event is back after a two-year hiatus and we’d love for you to join us for the opportunity to meet in person and catch up with our work and the projects we are supporting across the East Devon AONB.

About this event

  • With presentations from the AONB team, you’ll get the latest updates and developments on our commitment to nature in the AONB and our approach to working in partnership for sustainable communities and the recovery of declining wildlife and habitats.
  • We will also be welcoming artists Emma Molony (Double Elephant) and Rosie Stiling for a practical presentation on our recent ROUTES project.  Working with groups and schools across the AONB, the ROUTES  initiative has lead to a wide number of people connecting creatively with nature.
  • Emma & Rosie will offer the opportunity for you to try a little creative nature connection too with a mini creative workshop. 
  • A light lunch will provide the chance to chat and reconnect with other AONB ambassadors and supporters.
  • The session will finish with an optional riverside and woodland walk, taking a short route along the River Otter and into Harpford woods.
