We are delighted to welcome Chris Winnick, Chairman of Butterfly Conservation Cumbria, to host our first butterfly event of the year. Join Chris, local lepidopterist and butterfly expert, for an evening talk on the butterflies of Cumbria, in particular the Rusland valley area.
The Rusland valley is a biodiversity hotspot for butterflies, with 29 species recorded last year, including some nationally very rare and threatened species. With Chris' knowledge and expertise this promises to be a fascinating evening and an inspiring start to the 2022 butterfly season.
This will also be a great opportunity to meet other local nature enthusiasts and learn about how you can get involved in butterfly and moth conservation in the Rusland area.
The evening will include refreshments following the talk and an opportunity for questions and discussion.
The event is free to attend but booking is essential as places are limited.
