Where to go this season
In summer Devon’s butterflies, moths and dragonflies get the season moving. Here are some of the best places to get a closer look...
Unlock the secrets of one of North Devon’s most beautiful hidden valleys at Marsland nature reserve. A butterfly haven (near Bude)
Use Devon’s newest cycle way to explore the butterfly and moth-rich grassy meadows of Teigngrace Meadow nature reserve (near Bovey Tracey)
Go on a dragonfly and damselfly safari at Meeth Quarry nature reserve (near Hatherleigh). This reserve is great for butterflies too!
Other wild places to go this summer
Visit the one of our Culm grassland nature reserves as they burst into colour provided by hundreds of wildflowers. Dunsdon and Vealand Farm (both near Holsworthy) nature reserves are great places to start.
Spend a day at the beach and search among the rockpools on a guided ramble of marine wildlife discovery led by Wembury Marine Centre.
