Insect hotel

Butterflies and other insects are set to dine in style as a result of a project led by West Midlands Butterfly Conservation (WMBC). Volunteers have worked with Grow Cook Learn at the Shropshire Hills Discovery Centre in Craven Arms to create the county’s first Pollinators’ Garden and Insect Hotel. Plants were provided by CJ Wildlife, based near Shrewsbury.

Mike Williams from WMBC said, “Gardens can never replace natural habitats, but we hope this will inspire visitors to introduce these plants into their own gardens. We’re also looking to recruit volunteers for a project to conserve the Wood White butterfly, which has its stronghold in Shropshire and neighbouring counties.”
