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.
Alan Titchmarsh is calling on gardeners to make a metre for wildlife this summer by providing a refuge for struggling butterflies, moths and other pollinators.
