Can you spare a few hours to help?

Our branch continues to step up efforts to conserve butterflies and moths. As well as two major projects (Big City Butterflies and Small Blue), we are just completing our five year survey of butterflies as part of the Butterflies for the New Millennium project in the two counties and much more. If you could spare even a few hours to help with any of the tasks below, please do get in touch. Previous experience is not essential; we will provide any training needed. Contact details are all on the Committee page.

Events Malcolm Hull Our publicity stall is a great way to share information and gain support by attending events, usually in the Spring and Summer. We currently get to 3 or 4 events each year but with extra volunteers on the stall we could do more. Can you help with an event in your area?
