Branch newsletters

We publish the Dorset Branch newsletter in spring, summer and autumn each year

Delivery options

Newsletters for members who joined prior to 2016 will be posted out in hard copy unless you opt out - see below. Members from 2016 will be automatically opted out, but can choose to request paper copies.

Sending out our newsletters by post costs us around £350 per edition, which is money we could spend on conservation, and is less environmentally friendly.

To either opt out or opt in, please contact our Membership Secretary.

Publication dates

We publish three newsletters a year, one of which will be mainly a report on the year's butterflies. Publication is scheduled for March, July (butterfly report for the previous year) and September.

Contributions

We are always looking for contributions for the newsletters, whether they are observations about the butterflies or moths in your back garden, what you have seen out and about or Branch activities you have enjoyed. All contributions to our Newsletter Editor, please.

Deadlines

  • 28 February - for March publication
  • 31 August - for September publication
