Cornwall Butterfly Conservation – Open Day at Lethytep Farm near Looe

26 June, 2021 @ 11:00 am - 5:00 pm

Sadly Cornwall Butterfly Conservation’s planned event at Greenscoombe Wood in early June had to be cancelled but here is another event being run this weekend – an opportunity to visit a tranquil wildlife haven at Lethytep Farm, normally closed to the public, to support the work of CBC. 


You will see 52 acres of meadows, lakes and ancient woodland habitats that the owners manage for wildlife. They have been recording the flora and fauna of Lethytep for several years, and to date our records show 24 butterfly species, over 100 bird species and over 200 species of plant. One of the most spectacular sights are the thousands of Southern Marsh Orchids which flower from late May to early June.


Open to all by donation £6 at gate. Refreshments, toilet, ample parking Today also sees the launch of an exciting new Atlas on the Butterflies of Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly…Moth and scything displays.

Sorry, no dogs
