Kingshill LNR is a great place to find butterflies such has Common Blue and Green Hairstreak, which rely on the sunny open areas and rich diversity of wildflowers. Some areas of wildflowers are threatened by the encroachement of small trees and shrubs which block out the light, and if they were left unmanaged they would cover a large amount of this special place for butterflies.

Volunteers are needed to help with the removal of these trees and shrubs, and we'd love it if you could join us for this special volunteer work party. All training and tools will be provided, and we can pay your travel expenses to attend.

Date and time: Wednesday 17th November, 10am - 3pm
Location: Kingshill LNR, Allanton (near Shotts, North Lanarkshire).
Booking: booking is essential. Contact Project Officer Anthony McCluskey to book your space: @email

This habitat work party is part of the Helping Hands for Butterflies Project, which is funded by the National Lottery Heritage Fund and NatureScot. The work party is being co-ran with North Lanarkshire Council, which owns this site.
