Welcome to the Devon Branch of Butterfly Conservation
(Welcome to our new website, please be patient as the site continues to develop.)
The Devon branch runs regular summer field trips throughout the county plus an annual Members’ Day incorporating the AGM and including various interesting speakers and topics. The Devon branch also arranges winter work parties at important Butterfly sites in the county. In addition Devon branch volunteers attend various shows and conservation related events across Devon.
Devon branch conservation activities include offering advice to the public and to landowners on conserving and protecting butterflies, managing the Butterfly Conservation reserves at Lydford Gorge and Little Breach and collecting and compiling records of butterflies in Devon. The branch shares close links with Devon Moth Group in support of the interests of all Lepidoptera.
Butterfly Conservation is a registered charity dedicated to the conservation of butterflies and moths.
