My Wild Neighbourhood

Family in Woodland by Katharine Davies

Go wild! Discover nature in your community with Southern Co-op and your local Wildlife Trust.

Whether you live in the heart of a city or down a country lane –there’s always new wildlife experiences waiting to be discovered right on your doorstep.

Spending time in green spaces makes us happier and healthier - and best of all is good fun. With the help of Southern Co-op, Devon Wildlife Trust is helping families get outside in nature and explore our wild neighbourhoods:

Join a nature club
