County Wildlife Sites

County Wildlife Sites (CWS) are areas of land that are rich in wildlife such as a tract of heath, a meadow, a copse or a village pond. In general, at least five Devon notable plant species are required for the creation of a CWS but other criteria such as wintering bird interest may be used. For more detailed information on CWS contact Devon Biodiversity Records Centre. Some of our CWS are private with no access, please refer to individual site descriptions for access details.
