Butterfly Conservation’s European Interests Group is holding its AGM and members’ day on Saturday 4 November 2017 at the National Council for Voluntary Organisations near King’s Cross station in London.

BC members who do not currently belong to the Group, but are interested in learning about European butterflies outside the UK, and what the Group does, are also welcome to attend this meeting. This year, we are holding our meeting at a venue which will, we believe, be easily accessible for BC members from a number of branches. We hope this will provide an opportunity for butterfly enthusiasts curious about those hundreds of species in the rest of Europe, of which just a handful occasionally make it to these islands, to find out more about them, and how they can become involved in their study and conservation.

The meeting begins at 1.30pm and, as well as formal business and informal chat, will feature three talks on European butterflies and their conservation, including one by Martin Warren on ”Conserving Butterflies in Europe – Opportunities and Threats”. Following his recent retirement as chief executive of BC, Martin is now focusing his formidable talents on helping butterflies across all of Europe.

The address of the venue is National Council for Voluntary Organisations, Regent’s Wharf, 8 All Saints Road, London, N1 9RL, and a map showing the venue’s  location can be found at http://www.bc-eig.org.uk/downloads/ncvo-print-friendly-map.pdf .
