Volunteers Needed

Can you spare some time?

Wall Survey - Work by the Environment Ageny is affecting one of the last sites for the Wall on the coast of Suffolk near Bawdsey.  More people are needed to carry out a survey.  Even half a day would be invaluable.

Events - Next year we would like to find some people who are happy to help at some of our events.  You would not need to have any special knowledge but be happy to explain Butterfly Conservation and its aims.

Please go to our branch website for more details.
