Education & outreach

Through the Countryside Learning programme, Clinton Devon Estates and the Conservation Trust aim to improve awareness and appreciation of the countryside for all ages.

We run a programme of events throughout the year to reconnect people with the landscape around them, provide speakers to talk to local groups and arrange walks or visits to find out more about the countryside and how it is managed.

To see what events are coming up on the Pebblebed Heaths or River Otter please see our events calendar.

For primary and secondary schools we deliver outdoor educational experiences on the Pebblebed Heaths and Otter Estuary, we are also able to provide support for colleges wishing to visit.

Schools & educational visits

We are pleased to be able to offer outdoor learning experiences on the Pebblebed Heaths and the Otter Estuary for local schools in East Devon. We are currently creating a range of educational resources to further support this work, these will be available to download from June 2019.

A range of secondary school educational opportunities are also available through our Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) programme.

In addition, the Conservation Trust also partners with academic institutions to support undergraduate, Masters level and doctoral research programmes.

If your school is interested in joining our team for an insightful, fun and educational day to learn about how this historic and important landscape is managed for both the wildlife and public, please visit.

Any schools wishing to visit the heaths on a self led basis should still contact us in advance to make sure that what they have planning is appropriate for the site and that it doesn’t clash with any other work or events. By doing this our team will be able to help you make the most of your visit even if we are not delivering the session for you.
