92 days to go to National Insect Week

Butterflies of Allithwaite Quarry and Wartbarrow

Wednesday, June 22, 2016 - 13:00 to 15:00

Join the Cumbria Branch for an opportunity to see what we have done on our work parties on the access land of Wartbarrow and how much more butterfly-friendly the area is becoming. We hope to see Northern Brown Argus and Dingy Skipper butterflies.

Meet at 1pm in Allithwaite; Quarry Lane is just by the Post Office and leads to the community playing fields at Grid ref: SD388767, nearest postcode LA11 7QJ, where there is plenty of parking.

Please do not park in Quarry Lane as it causes friction.

For more information, or if you would like to attend, please contact Martin Chadwick, tel: 01539 532553, or 07722 571327 on the day.
