Guided Walks

Due to the Covid-19 restrictions,  we have only been able to host a few our Guided Walks this year - the final ones being in August.

Arion Magazine

Our branch magazine, The Arion is produced and distributed to our members three times a year. 

Sue, our editor is always looking for content  - so please get in touch if you would like to contribute.

Social Events

We would usually have a few social events throughout the year. 

Our AGM and Members' Day is booked for Saturday 27th November 2021 and we we are planning to hold it in person this year (at Ruishton Village hall).

Facebook group

Our Facebook Group is a where members can share their sightings, post photos, ask advice, and share butterfly & moth chat with others.  For privacy purposes this is a private group, which means that only those who join the group can view or respond to the information posted.

We also have a branch page on the Butterfly Conservation website
