Species to look out for
The Cheshire and Peak 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 part of 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 and Peak Branch.
Gardeners are being asked to help the UK’s beleaguered butterflies, bees and moths by making their county the most pollinator-friendly in the UK.
