Wildlife in Devon farmsteads and houses (Axe Valley Branch)
Wed. 21 November 2018 at 2:30 pm
£1 – £3
Patrick Dillon* takes a look at some of the wild animals that share our living spaces. Historically, some animals, owls for example, were welcome and adaptations made to enable them to co-inhabit our living spaces. Others were less welcome and had to be deterred. Buildings from iron age round houses to Devon farmsteads, bee boles to dove cotes, have been modified. These modifications reflect our changing attitudes to wildlife.
Entrance donation £1.00 for DA members and £3.00 for non-members.
* Patrick is Emeritus Professor at the University of Exeter. He is a cultural ecologist interested in how people shape and are shaped by the environments in which they live.
