Founded in 1981, the Yorkshire Branch of Butterfly Conservation is one of the largest geographically as the county of Yorkshire measures approximately 150km north to south and 170km east to west!
From its humble beginnings with eighteen members, the branch has grown steadily to around 1700 members today. If you live in the region and are a member of Butterfly Conservation you automatically become a member of the Yorkshire Branch.
