In 2012 we concentrated on encouraging people to plant butterfly friendly plants in their gardens as some species are in decline. They were then encouraged to take part in a butterfly survey organized by the Butterfly Conservation Society, which can illustrate the effects of climate change.

We're also undertaking several wildflower mix planting sessions in and around BoA - the newly planted Bearfield Orchard and the new Mythern Meadow footpath.
