An introduction to identifying butterflies found in Yorkshire and how to record them, in partnership with Butterfly Conservation.

Pollinators - Butterflies of Yorkshire

10am-3pm Wednesday 22 June | FREE, donations welcome 

Colt Park Barn, Ingleborough National Nature Reserve, LA6 3JF

In partnership with Butterfly Conservation.

Join us for an introduction to butterfly identification, how to tell some of the trickier ones apart and why butterflies are important.

The day will be split between a classroom session and a guided walk through Ingleborough National Nature Reserve’s Colt Park Meadows and Yorkshire Wildlife Trust’s Salt Lake Quarry.

Want to record butterflies? Tutor Kay Andrews will take you through some of the many ways to record butterflies and get involved; from recording a butterfly seen in your garden or out on a walk to walking a butterfly transect.

This workshop is being delivered for free as part of Bee Together a project that brings communities together to take action for pollinators in the Yorkshire Dales and surrounding areas. We'd welcome your donations to help protect our precious pollinators.
