In December 2010, the East Devon AONB Team presented the Devon County Council Parish Biodiversity Audit Report for Beer to the Parish Council. In liaison with our local wildlife champion, Pat Farrell, the Parish Council was keen to identify some practical outcomes from the parish biodiversity audit and to use local green spaces to celebrate and raise awareness of the wildlife and landscape features of the parish. The emerging project became known as 'Wildscapes'. The aims of Wildscapes are:
- To help visitors and residents to find out more about wildlife in their parish greenspaces
- To be a starting point for encouraging further involvement in the local conservation charity – the Axe Vale and district Conservation Society
- To provide additional information about the village and the East Devon AONB (Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty).
