|Big City Butterflies
|Our major four-year project promoting learning, recording and conservation of butterflies in London. If you'd like to see butterflies and moths thrive in this area please get in touch or register to volunteer here. The project covers are the City of London and London Boroughs of Brent, Camden, Hackney, Hammersmith & Fulham, Islington, Kensington & Chelsea, Tower Hamlets, Westminster
|Join our monthly work parties at our own butterfly nature reserve at Millhoppers Pasture, near Tring. More help is always appreciated with managing hedges, cutting grass, clearing streams and much more.
|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?
|Help the branch locate blackthorn in key Brown Hairstreak areas and possibly find new sites for the elusive butterfly - click here for details
