AONB: North Devon

Life on the Verge

100 volunteers from 15 communities have helped with surveying and managing road verges, a distinctive feature of Devon’s heritage.

Road verges provide a range of habitats and are increasingly important wildlife corridors for threatened species and pollinators. They also provide one of the only opportunities for us to see native wildflowers on a daily basis.
