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!

  • 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)

 

Grizzled SkipperThe 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
