92 days to go to National Insect Week

Summer Treasure Hunt at Wilton

Saturday, July 2, 2016 - 11:00

Join the Wiltshire Branch on this fun day to help improve your butterfly identification and recording skills.

We shall gather briefly in Wilton Park and Ride car park and form into teams.

Each team will be made up from beginners and more experienced people

The survey squares will be drawn out of the hat and the teams will depart for a nearby square (or two)

For each team their name will be put into the hat for each butterfly species seen and one extra if they are lucky to select a “White Square” or “Wider Countryside Square” to visit

The teams will return at 3pm for the prize draw, where the winning team will be drawn from the hat  

Meet at 11am in Wilton Park and Ride car park, Grid ref: SU 102 320 (Map 184), nearest postcode SP2 0AT.

Take the North exit onto The Avenue from the A36 at Wilton

Turn left into the Park and Ride at the next roundabout
