Jun 15 The Butterfly Effect By Judith

Managing your woodlands for butterflies

There are over 50 species of butterfly in the UK, along with more than 2,000 species of moth. Sadly, they have all been in decline for the past 40 years, but woodland owners are in a unique position to help support butterfly populations. With just a little work, woodland owners can ensure that their woodlands include areas that favour butterflies and moths.

We are delighted to be running workshops in conjunction with Butterfly Conservation to discuss managing woodland for butterflies.

23 July Longlands Wood (part of Tottington Wood) near Small Dole

Award-winning expert Neil Hulme will lead a walk around this beautiful Sussex woodland to find butterflies and discuss their habitat need.

30 July Coombewell Wood Lamberhurst

Distinguished specialist Steve Wheatley will lead this workshop, explaining how woodland owners can encourage butterflies in their woodland and help increase butterfly populations.

Each event will be from 1.30–4.30pm.

Take a look at our leaflet on managing woodlands for butterflies, for some general hints and tips.

Please email judith@swog.org.uk if you would like to attend.
