A new Tropical Butterfly House has opened at this very popular family adventure venue. We will get a “behind the scenes” look at the running of the facility.
Urban spaces can be surprisingly good homes for butterflies, with some species even being more common in towns than they are in the wider countryside. Join us on this free training workshop at Craigmillar to find out how to identify and record these beautiful butterflies which are on your doorstep.
Please join the Glasgow And SW Scotland Branch at our Members Meeting and Branch AGM. We will be holding guided butterfly walks around the grounds, providing interesting talks on the butterflies and moths found across the region and there will be a raffle and tea and coffee available!
Tea and coffee will also be available and we will be holding a raffle too!

This will be followed by a field visit to a suitable location nearby (possibly Morar beach) to look for...
