See all the good work being done

Every pledge that is created in the Pledge for Nature section of this website creates a green ‘pledge pin’ which is then placed on the pledge map below. Get inspired today by interacting with the map to see what other people are doing in the North Devon Biosphere, perhaps even in your area.

Once you are ready to create your pledge, simply read more about how pledges work below and complete the Create a Pledge online form: it takes < 1 minute!

Every month we like to review the brilliant pledges tand events that have happened. This month we had Earth Day (theme 'restore our earth'), we visited Braunton to give out house martin nest cup materials and wildflower seeds and we have helped to support a new community rewilding project in South Molton. Barnstaple in Bloom also organised a brilliant 'Tidy the Taw' event. This month we have a special guest writer Bethany Lee (volunteer) who has written a section about how to enjoy the sunshine in an environmental responsible manner which ties in well with the Devon wide Naturally Healthy May campaign!
