Species to look out for
The Cheshire & Peak District branch was established in 1985 with the aims of promoting the conservation of butterflies and moths, together with their habitats in Cheshire, Wirral, South Manchester and the Peak District.
It promotes its activities at local shows and conservation fairs, carries out research and recording work, arranges talks and presentations to interested bodies and is actively involved in supporting the work of other conservation groups.
If you live in the region and are a member of Butterfly Conservation you automatically become a member of the Cheshire & Peak District branch.
