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.
