The Devon Wildlife Trust is hosting a guided walk where you can learn all about the wildlife to be found along a stretch of the South West Coast Path.

The walk takes in Wembury and the Yealm estuary and is being held to mark the end of South West Water's £2bn Clean Sweep coastal programme.

The walk, which is free, is on Saturday 10 July 2010.

It is a 3.5 mile circular walk from 11am to 1pm and starts at Wembury Marine Centre at Wembury Beach.

"Our guided walk will give people the opportunity to explore a beautiful area of coastline," said Cat Ridout from the Devon Wildlife Trust.

"As well as considering how we can look after our coastal environment, we'll be looking out for all sorts of wildlife so bring a camera or a pair of binoculars and who knows what we will see."

From Wembury Beach, the route follows the South West Coast Path to the River Yealm at Warren Point near Newton Ferrers and back through Wembury village to the starting point.

On the way walkers will discover more about how river and coastal water quality is affected by human activities.

For more information, contact the marine centre on 01752 862538 or email: info@wemburymarinecentre.org

BBC Devon has done this walk, but in the opposite direction - see our Wembury walk feature.
