Natural Environment

The Natural Environment committee provides a focus for members with an interest in, or concern for, wild plants and animals, as well as agricultural practices, in or near the River Otter. It carries out wildlife surveys from time to time, either independently or in collaboration with other bodies. It also monitors the actions and publications of the Environment Agency and wildlife conservation bodies for this area. 



The committee takes a practical interest in environmental projects in the Lower Otter Valley. A brief description of some of these projects is given below:










Also we have published two full colour leaflets on the wildlife and flowers of the Lower Otter Valley.
