Join experts from Butterfly Conservation later this month to discover how you can survey for butterflies near you.

The two FREE workshops will teach you everything you need to know to survey butterflies, focusing on the UK Butterfly Monitoring Scheme and the Wider Countryside Butterfly Survey.

Presentations will be given during the morning, followed by lunch that will be provided to all participants. In the afternoon, site visits will take place, so please wear suitable footwear and dress for the weather.

The training events will be held on Thursday 17th March and Tuesday 22nd March, 10:30am – 3:00pm, at the Tamar Valley Centre, Drakewalls. Each workshop is different to cover both survey schemes.
