Butterfly Conservation: Volunteer Work Party in Dumfries and Galloway! *Contact Jim*

Posted on behalf of Butterfly Conservation
A workparty to cut gorse at Carrick Foreshore, on Wednesday 8th January, starting at 10.00 am. To help butterfies and moths and especially, the Northern Brown Argus. We will be working through until the afternoon, so please bring a packed lunch if you are able to stay. You are still very welcome if you are able to come only for the morning or the afternoon. We will have some tools available on each day; however, if you have a bow saw (or similar saw) and/or loppers, please bring them along, and bring a warm drink and a pair of stout gloves – gorse is prickly! The ground is uneven, so a good pair of boots is recommended.

If you are planning to come, please contact Jim Asher jim.asher@btinternet.com so that we have some idea of numbers, and in case of any late changes of plan. Please just ask if you need any more information.
