Saturday 19th May 2018, 1.00pm-3.30pm

Weymouth Relief Road

Join us on this guided butterfly walk on the slopes next to the Weymouth Relief Road.

During the construction of the road, an imaginative plan was devised to create new herb-rich downland on the slopes alongside it.

This event gives us the opportunity to monitor the development of this important new habitat, where more than 25 species of butterfly have already been recorded.

Everyone is to meet at 1.00 pm at the truncated end of the Broadmayne road where it meets the relief road, The nearest post code is DT3 5PR and the map reference is SY 674 859.

N.B. Access is only possible from the eastern side of the relief road.

If you would like to attend or for more information about the day, please contact John Elliott on 01305 889380.
