Learn all about butterflies

THE Scottish Wildlife Trust are offering nature lovers in Cumbernauld the chance to learn all about butterflies, moths and caterpillars at an educational afternoon this month.

The group are hosting a day at Palacerigg Country Park on Sunday, January 8 and are welcoming anyone with an interest in nature to come along.

Patricia Stewart, chairperson of the Cumbernauld branch of the SWT said: “This is really interesting, easy-learning for families with older children as well as all interested adults.

“Your new knowledge will give your garden and country walks a whole new dimension and make your sightings so much more rewarding and fun.”

Tickets for the event are £2 (kids go free) and can be bought from Patricia on 0141 775 3850.
