This summer, from 20 July to 1 September, visitors can discover the fascinating world of beetles at the Butterfly Farm in Stratford-upon-Avon. Mark from The Insect Farm will be at the Farm on 20 and 25 July, and 3, 7 and 28 August at 11am in the Discovery Zone. The Insect Farm employs a team of professional entomologists who provide beetles, mantis, butterflies, moths and stick insects. Mark will be talking about beetles and showing visitors each stage of the beetle lifecycle with live specimens.

Stratford Butterfly farm is also inviting visitors to come along this summer and make a green promise by writing a pledge to help protect nature. Pledges to do something positive can be actioned at home, school or at work. The pledges will be entered into a weekly prize draw to win a family season ticket to Stratford Butterfly Farm. Jane Kendrick, Marketing Manager, says: “Having Mark visit the Butterfly Farm over the summer presents an ideal opportunity for visitors to learn more about these fascinating creatures and why we should be protecting them. We would also love our visitors to pledge their love to nature and make a green action promise this summer.”

Meet the Mini-Beast handling sessions and Butterfly Life-Cycle demonstrations will take place daily at 11am in the Discovery Zone. The team of experts will demonstrate from egg through to adult, the amazing stages of the butterfly life cycle as well as giving visitors the opportunity to handle a variety of stick insects.
