Description

Are you aged 16-25 and want to make a difference for nature and the environment?

Join us in the South Downs National Park for a butterfly action day on the South Downs. This is your chance to help protect our precious pollinators like butterflies and bees and to learn more about their habitats. National Park rangers will be guiding you on how to identify butterflies and how to submit sightings on a smartphone, as well as guiding you around the South Downs to learn about the history and wildlife found there.


What you'll need: a passion for the environment! If you have a smartphone, the app iRecord Butterflies will be useful: https://butterfly-conservation.org/our-work/recording-and-monitoring/irecord-butterflies

Please also bring drinking water and something for lunch or a snack


What to wear: Sturdy outdoor footwear suitable for being out in the countryside on uneven paths and clothing suitable for the conditions like waterproof coat or sun hat/glasses


Where to meet: South Downs National Park Rangers can pick you up from Barnham Railway Station for a 9:30 departure to the South Downs.

Cost: it's free, this is volunteering!


Expenses
: we can reimburse reasonable travel expenses
