This workshop is suitable for anyone interested in assisting with the annual monitoring of threatened butterfly and moth species across Dartmoor. Every summer we rely on a small team of volunteers to help us with our target species surveys, monitoring population changes and ensuring their survival. 

This workshop will cover all you need to know to be able to identify and survey for three key species; Small Pearl-bordered Fritillary, Marsh Fritillary, and Narrow-bordered Bee Hawk-moth. 

We will be outside all day in a wet meadow so please be prepared for all weathers (waterproofs, sun cream/hat, warm clothes). Please also bring a packed lunch and wear waterproof boots or wellies. Meet at Hound Tor car park at 10.30am, where we will car share a short distance to site.

Places are limited so booking is essential through Megan please. 

This event is free-of-charge as part of the National Lottery Heritage Funded 'All the Moor Butterflies' project.
