The Lancashire Branch has a regular programme of winter work parties, usually held every Tuesday and Thursday, depending on the weather. We are likely to be working on our Myers Allotment reserve, but may then move on to other sites in the area if required...
Species to look out for
Welcome to the Lancashire Branch of Butterfly Conservation. The Lancashire Branch covers the counties of Lancashire, Northern Greater Manchester and Liverpool.
If you live in the region and are a member of Butterfly Conservation you automatically become a member of the Lancashire branch.
Within our area we have a great variety of moths and butterflies - including a number of National rarities.
During 2017 we are updating and adding new sections to this Lancashire Branch web page - please bear with us if something currently looks incomplete!

Can You Help?
Some of Lancashire and Cumbria's rarest butterflies are under threat of disappearing completely if we don't do something to help them now!
We are holding a free event at Lancaster University on Saturday 11th March to discuss what the current situation is and what we need to do next to ensure the survival of these beautiful butterflies.
Butterfly expert and author, Matthew Oates, will be a guest speaker on the day.
