Species to look out for
Welcome to the Glasgow & SW Scotland Branch of Butterfly Conservation.
The branch area includes Dumfries & Galloway, Ayrshire, Greater Glasgow, Stirlingshire, Argyll, the Argyll islands, Dunbartonshire & Loch Lomond. This includes Scotland's first National Park: Loch Lomond & the Trossachs National Park. These regions include a diverse range of landscapes providing a range of habitats from the fertile central lowlands and coastal parts of Ayrshire/Dumfries & Galloway to the moorland of more inland areas of these counties and to the rugged mountain scenery of the southern highlands and Argyll and to the unique scenery and habitats of the Argyll islands.
If you live in the region and are a member of Butterfly Conservation you automatically become a member of the Glasgow & SW Scotland branch.
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!
Provisional date - A walk to hopefully see Pearl-bordered Fritillary & whatever else is on the wing.
