Butterflies of Devon - Evening Talk from Pete Hurst
More information

Join us for an evening talk with Pete Hurst to learn all about butterflies and moths, with a look at their lifecycle, usefulness and threats.

Lepidoptera, the order of winged insects that includes butterflies and moths, are among the most widespread groups of insects and are found on all continents but one across the world – even on the Arctic circle. They are undoubtedly beautiful and remarkable creatures. But, do you know your butterfly from your moth? Is it true that butterflies migrate? What is their role in nature?

Join us for an evening talk with Pete Hurst to learn all about these beautiful insects, with a look at their lifecycle, usefulness and threats. Pete Hurst is a long-standing committee member of the Butterfly Conservation Devon Branch and will share his passion and knowledge with you about the wonderful world of butterflies. With a focus on Devon butterflies, including some of our rarities, he will also touch upon the local conservation efforts to protect them. Learn about the differences between butterflies and moths, with a bit of myth-busting followed by a delve into the world of moths too.

We hope you can join us at this evening talk and be inspired about nature!
