Come along and join a group of like-minded people who are enthusiastic about the conservation of the Grizzled Skipper butterfly.
This nationally important species occurs at a number of sites in south Nottinghamshire.
Many of these sites require regular management to keep them in a suitable condition for the butterfly, so we will be undertaking a series of practical workdays and would love for you to join!
What to bring
- Warm clothing and stout footwear
- Work gloves (gloves will be provided if you don’t have any)
- Tools (if you have any - bow saws/loppers/spades. Tools will be provided, along with instruction on their use)
The work will involve
- Scrub clearance work to maintain open habitats required by the Grizzled Skipper and to help create corridors to link existing open habitats
- Creation of bare earth patches to increase the availability of suitable egg-laying habitat
