About the event

Around 60 species of butterfly live in the UK and a diverse selection of them can be seen on BCN Wildlife Trust reserves. A complex life cycle means that many butterflies are extremely sensitive to environmental change and these species can act as important bio-indicators. Therefore, studying butterflies can help us monitor natural ecosystems and protect a wide array of other animals and plants.

This workshop aims to provide background information on the biology and ecology of butterflies, and will also include a field trip where you will learn to identify some of the species yourself. The site visit will take place at Totternhoe Quarry, one of only a handful of sites in Bedfordshire where the rare Duke of Burgundy butterfly holds a strong population.
