Butterfly conservation workshop CANCELLED

*Due to the hands-on nature of this particular event, and the growing concerns about COVID-19, this event has been cancelled. The Museum remains open for business as usual, and the programme of events is still going ahead. 

 

Join Butterfly Conservation to find out about the 5 species of Hairstreak Butterfly and what you can do to help them.

There are five species of hairstreak butterfly in the UK. Of all butterflies, this group is particularly at risk of habitat destruction, especially from development and changes in farming practices. The Oxford and Ampthill Clays are the only place in the UK where all five of the hairstreak family of butterflies naturally occur.

Workshop content will include:

  • A brief background to the Charity and the Local branch
  • Species descriptions for the 5 hairstreak butterflies including how to identify them
  • Survey and monitoring methods

Attendees will then be the first to find out about a series of walks we have planned over the summer so that you can see the butterflies in the field. please note that this workshop is an aimed at adults, but older children (over 14) are welcome to attend if accompanied by an adult.

Suitable for adults and young people. 

Part of our NLHF funded HOPE for the Future project.
