Welcome to the East Midlands Branch of Butterfly Conservation
Butterfly Conservation is a registered charity dedicated
to the conservation of butterflies and moths.
The East Midlands Branch of Butterfly Conservation covers the counties of Nottinghamshire, Leicestershire & Rutland and lowland Derbyshire.
Butterfly Conservation is a membership organisation and has people with all sorts of interests and levels of knowledge - those who like looking at butterflies and moths in their garden, those who are fascinated by their life cycle, some who are true experts and want to pass on their knowledge to others and people who feel passionately about wildlife conservation.
The East Midlands Branch welcomes new members with any or all of the above interests. If you would like to find out more about joining Butterfly Conservation please contact our Membership Secretary or visit the Membership Web Site.
