Come along for a fun morning learning about butterflies in Crane Park

About this Event

Take part in the annual Big Butterfly Count . We hope to hold a walk this year but may hold a zoom if government covid guidelines require it, but you can also easily look for the butterflies out of the window, whilst sitting in your garden or walking in the local park to join the fun.

The big butterfly count is a nationwide survey aimed at helping us assess the health of our environment. It was launched in 2010 and has rapidly become the world's biggest survey of butterflies. Over 113,500 people took part in 2019, submitting 116,009 counts of butterflies and day-flying moths from across the UK. This event is specifically arranged to identify butterflies in your local area so you can download the Big Butterfly Chart to tick them off, making it an ideal family activity.

This is a great activity to do with the children and is also one of the FORCE Family Challenge activities to collect a stamp ! For those who haven't signed up yet, just click here to join in and start collecting stamps for the FORCE Challenge water vole badge !

As we do not know whether there will be any Covid guidelines in July, this event may be held virtually via zoom. If we are able to meet outside in a group we shall visit Mereway Nature Park beside the River Crane where there are woods, grassland and park environments to find different varities of butterflies and moths. Please come along with sturdy footwear, and in clothing suitable for the weather on that day.  Also bring water and suncream as we hope it will be a glorious sunny day ! Booking is essential as numbers are limited.  We look forward to seeing you.

This walk is organised by FORCE as part of a series of walks and talks in the local area. Due to safeguarding needs all children under 18 must be accompanied by a responsible adult.  Photograph of the Red Admiral butterfly is courtesy of CloseEyeOnTheCrane by Keith Martin.
