West Cambs 100s Youth Rangers: butterfly survey


West Cambs 100s Youth Rangers is a series of activities for secondary-age young people to attend independently. There is something most months either on a Saturday morning, or on a Friday during school holidays. It might be a practical task, walk, social event, talk or workshop. These sessions are aimed at young people aged 11-17 interested in local wildlife and global environmental issues. Some activities are free.

For the July sessions, Communities and Education Officer Rebecca Neal will be joined by Wildlife Trust BCN trustee and University of Cambridge butterfly researcher Matt Hayes for a butterfly survey on Trumpington Meadows Nature Reserve. We'll discuss identification tips and survey methods, plus talk about the management of our sites for butterflies and the research that is happening across our nature reserves.

Booking is essential because we need to have parental consent and emergency contact details
