Kent is a large county with an impressive range of habitats. Ancient woodland, chalk grassland and miles of coastal parks are home to over forty species of butterflies and some of the rarest moths in the country. If you live in our region and are a member of Butterfly Conservation you automatically become a member of the Kent & South East London branch.
Our committee and members are active throughout the year and hold regular field trips, work parties and meetings. We are always in need of new people to help with conservation, data recording and fund raising so do get in touch with any of us on the committee - you are guaranteed a warm welcome!
