Events Diary

Events for everyone! Join us for a talk, enjoy making crafts or a gentle guided walk in ‘Barn Owl Heaven’ – often with home-made refreshments with organic or local ingredients. Make a real difference with practical conservation work. Or learn how to professionally survey for Barn Owls.

We are based on the edge of Dartmoor, near Ashburton and our events are mostly in South Devon and South West UK.
