Welcome

The Sussex branch holds regular outdoor events across the county, plus an indoor AGM and a Spring Social. It manages the Butterfly Conservation reserve at Park Corner Heath where there are work parties, it advises landowners across the county how to conserve and protect butterflies and moths, and it collects and compiles records of butterflies in Sussex.

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.
