A free workshop is being held to give people the opportunity to discover the butterflies found at one of the region's beauty spots.

The workshop will help people identify butterfly and moth species which live at Thetford Forest and how the Forestry Commission provides habitats for them.

It will be held on Wednesday, July 11 from 10am until 4pm at Oak Lodge, at High Lodge, and will take place in the forest.

Sharon Hearle, a senior regional officer for Butterfly Conservation, will led the event.

The workshop is part of the Trailing the Hidden Heritage of High Lodge Project.

The Forestry Commission was awarded funding by the Heritage Lottery Fund to make a new all-ability access trail into the forest which will link and interpret its landscape history, wildlife and forest management.

To book a place, email or call 0300 067 4400.
