Join us on this free workshop, where you will find out how to identify all the common butterfly species of central Scotland. We will also cover the life cycles of butterflies, and discuss ways we can help their populations in our gardens and communities. The aim of the workshop will be to train new volunteers to record butterflies on butterfly monitoring transects (specific routes where we record butterflies from April – September) but even if you are not able to commit to recording this way you are still welcome to attend.
We will spend the morning at an indoor venue at Linlithgow Burgh Halls, then go outside in the afternoon to see the butterfly transect at nearby Linlithgow Loch.
Booking is essential. Reserve your space by emailing Project Officer Anthony on firstname.lastname@example.org or phoning 01786459811 (please leave a message if there is now answer).
No previous experience is necessary. This event is suitable for all, but children under 16 should be accompanied by an adult. Full information on the venue and times will be provided following booking.
