St Nicks

Centre for nature and green living

The Big Butterfly Count starts on 15th July – use this great opportunity to learn which butterflies flutter around your home or favourite green space by downloading the ID chart or free smartphone app from the website. You’ll be contributing to national records of how butterflies are doing around the UK and have fun with activities for the whole family. If you do the count at St Nicks, please let us know what you’ve seen! Or if you need another excuse to be outdoors this weekend, why not explore Edible Open Gardens on Saturday 16th July – more than a dozen gardens around York will be open for visitors.

You will find more tips of the week on this page.
