2017 Butterfly Events

There will be a series of butterfly walks and workshops across 2017. There are a series of two/three hour walks where you can join an experienced recorder in the field to learn all about butterflies, or for the 10am – 4pm events these will cover all aspects of the project including species identification and approaches to surveying butterflies. The list below is still in development and more dates will be added soon, so come back often to check for updates!
