Holyrood Park is one of the best places to see butterflies in central Scotland, with over 18 species being found there including rare species like Grayling and Northern Brown Argus. The wildflower-rich areas these butterflies need are threatened by encroaching trees and shrubs, so we need to undertake work to remove them.

All training and tools will be provided, and we can pay your travel expenses to attend.

Date and time: Sunday 16th January 2022, 10am-3pm
Location: Holyrood Park, Edinburgh. Full directions will be given to anyone who registers.
