Join us for an online workshop in butterfly identification and monitoring.

This workshop will cover the identification of the common and widespread species found in Scotland, and a description of the methods used to monitor butterfly populations on 'butterfly transects'. It is hoped that participants will go on to send in records of butterflies using apps and websites. These records can inform our conservation work, and we welcome volunteers from all levels of experience.

Each of these online workshops has identical content, so you only need to attend on one of the dates.  They will be followed up with in-person events to look for butterflies at various locations throughout Scotland. Those will be confirmed at a later date to anyone who registers for the online workshops.

Booking: please book your space by clicking here to register via the Zoom website - you only need to choose one of the dates listed there. If you have any queries please contact Project Officer Anthony McCluskey on @email

The workshop will run between 10am and noon, with a comfort break between presentations. They will be delivered over an online platform called Zoom, and full instructions will be send to all registered attendees.

This workshop is being delivered as part of the Helping Hands for Butterflies Project which is generously funded by the National Lottery Heritage Fund and NatureScot.
