Blackwater Valley Countryside Trust

About the organiser

Blackwater Valley Countryside Trust organises events, including walks, talks and conservation activities.

We encourage people to take part in them, to be introduced to, and educated about the Valley and its wildlife.

We have a great reputation for scenic and well organised walks, and hope you'll join us.

    Join Paul Richards, butterfly recorder at Moor Green Lakes, for a free family friendly butterfly and bug hunt.

    Key information

    There may be some long grass, so please wear stout shoes and long trousers.

    Please bring binoculars if you have them - they might help you spot some more distant butterflies.

    Dogs are welcome, but must be on leads please.

    Please email Paul to let him know if you're coming

    The event will be cancelled if its raining but we hope not!

    More about the event

    While it's pouring with rain, there are few butterflies and bugs to be seen but by the time of our hunt we should see plenty - Moor Green Lakes has a good butterfly list recorded there.

    Children will enjoy this so do bring them along!

  • September 21, 2019 - September 29, 2019 All day

    Our next big event this year is one we haven't done before.

    For a whole week in September we are staging a number of events, in partnership with other local like-minded organisations, based in or around the River Blackwater.

    Our reasons for doing this include improving people's awareness of just how much there is to enjoy in the Valley, and recognising the work that the BVCT and Partnership has done over the last 40 years.

    More details will follow in the coming months.
