AONB - Free online informative talks about South Devon during Feb to May 2021

AONB are running a series of informal and informative online talks, each month during February to May 2021 from the comfort of your own sofa.

  • Tuesday 23rd Feb 7pm-8pm 120 years of farming in Prawle, South Devon
    70% of the AONB is farmed and it has shaped our landscape for centuries. Using old family photos, archives and personal stories, Roger Tucker will show how farming and farming family life has changed over the last 120 years.
  • Monday 15th March 7pm – 8pm Tales of the Dart estuary
    John Risdon’s wealth of knowledge and enthusiasm for this special part of the South Devon AONB always makes his talks fascinating. Find out more about the history of living, working and leisure time on the Dart estuary with John’s tales and wonderful archive images.
  • Thursday 25th March 7pm – 8pm South Devon AONB Estuaries
    Our estuaries support a bizarrely low biodiversity but populations of organisms measured in truly astronomic figures, what is going on here? Explore some of our local estuaries’ geography and ecology with Nigel Mortimer, our Estuaries Officer. Find out what makes them so special, what are their threats and how and why we really ought to care?
  • Monday 19th April 7pm – 8pm A seasonal guide to bird watching in South Devon AONB – Spring
    Adam will introduce you to birds you can see around the AONB over the Spring. Find out about migration and the journeys they have taken to get here from far off places and how they are getting ready for the busiest time of the bird year – breeding season. He will also tell you about the magic of the Dawn Chorus and how you can get involved with International Dawn Chorus Day on Sunday 2nd May.
  • Tuesday 11th May 7pm – 8pm A history of orchards and cidermaking in South Devon
    Join Robin Toogood, chair of Orchard Link, for a journey through time looking at the importance of orchards and cider making to our landscape and communities. Find out how Devon became famous for its cider, why there were so many orchards here, why they disappeared and how they are making a comeback.
