About the event

There are 38 species of butterflies recorded in Worcestershire each year, many of which can be spotted in our gardens or further afield in local green spaces or on our nature reserves. How many have visited your garden or local green space and which can you recognise? 

Join us for an online event where local expert Mel Mason will tell us all about butterflies as well as help you to identify some of the most common species found in the gardens and green spaces of Worcestershire – and why sunshine is more important than air temperature for butterflies.  There will be plenty of time for questions and discussion about how you can help them where you live too.

This event is part of our series of beginners events for adults and aims to help you become more aware of the wildlife around you and what you can do to help it.  All welcome, no previous knowledge or experience necessary.

Ticket sales for this event will end 20 minutes before it starts (6.10pm).
