Salcey Forest, east of the village of Hartwell, between Northampton and Newport Pagnell in Northamptonshire.
Aimed at both the complete beginner and more experienced conservationists alike, join us for some woodland ride management in Salcey Forest. We would like to maintain and make the habitat more suitable for woodland butterflies, including the Wood White and Black Hairstreak.
Butterfly Conservation relies on the support of thousands of volunteers, and we are always looking for more help inside the office and out in the field. Whether you want to volunteer at a local branch, get outside and help manage our nature reserves, or help with one of our events, we have something for everyone to get involved in! Your time can make a real difference.
