This event will be a chance to hear about our work in Scotland and opportunities for you to get involved. Our keynote speaker will be Dr Phil Sterling, Butterfly Conservation staff member and co-author of The Field Guide to Micro-moths and Field Guide to the Caterpillars of GB and Ireland.

We'll also hear from East Scotland branch volunteer Katty Baird on her 'Meetings with moths', and BC's Senior Surveys Officer Zoe Randle on the publication of two major reports on the state of our butterfly and moth populations. Other talks will include the creation of Wild Spaces, Kentish Glory and Northern Brown Argus research, our new Species on the Edge project, and volunteer opportunities.

At lunchtime we hope to have some live moths from moth traps, and a demonstration of moth trapping methods. The £15 cost of booking will include a hot lunch, tea and coffee on arrival and in the afternoon.
