Something to offer every wildlife enthusiast!

Tavistock Local Group organises a programme of walks, talks and other activities throughout the year for the West Devon area.  

We are sure we have something to offer all nature enthusiasts, whether it be a birdwatching walk or a behind-the-scenes tour of the National Marine Aquarium.
