Welcome to the Lancashire Branch of Butterfly Conservation

Butterfly Conservation is a registered charity dedicated to the conservation of butterflies and moths.

The Lancashire Branch covers the counties of Lancashire, Northern Greater Manchester and Liverpool.

Within our area we have a great variety of moths and butterflies - including a number of National rarities.

Details of forthcoming events and field trips are listed, as are the contents of the Branch Library.

We also hope to build up a pictorial journal of the highlights from our trips and to publish details of good sites for finding both moths and butterflies.

Please come back from time to time to keep abreast of the latest news form the Branch.

Committee Changes

Lancashire BC members will be aware that after sterling service a number of committee members have stood down over the last eighteen months leaving vacancies on our committee.

We would like Your support for two types of vacancy:-

  1. Committee members without additional responsibilities
    To attend 2-3 meetings per year and our annual members day/AGM, to contribute to discussion and planning.
  2. Committee members with additional responsibilities
    We still have vacancies for Branch Chair, Branch Contact/Organiser, Treasurer and Secretary.
    If you can help with any of the above vacancies or just want more information please get in touch via our Contact Us page.

New Committee Arrangements

In November 2014 a special committee meeting took place to discuss how best we could develop without a full committee.
We are pleased to say that Chris Winnick [ Chair of Cumbria BC ] and Malcolm Plant [ Chair of Cheshire BC ] accepted our invitation to be joint-Chair/Branch Organisers until we can recruit replacements from our membership. It was also confirmed that Butterfly Conservation Head Office will act as Treasurer during this interim period and that all existing committee members will remain in post.

In addition, our Membership Secretary, Alex Parsons, has taken on the additional role of Moth Officer and Anne Smith and Mike Bloomfield have agreed to join the committee.

This is good news as it means we can better plan how to support our membership and our butterflies and moths in their beautiful Lancashire countryside.

If your new Branch Organisers can help in any of these and other matters do not hesitate to contact:-
