The Hyndburn Butterfly Project
The Hyndburn Butterfly Project completed a wildflower meadow in Milnshaw Park in 2018. The first year saw predominantly annual flowers, subsequent years have been dominated by the perennials. The meadow has attracted many butterflies to the park and has been very successful. Funding for this project came from the Windfall Fund. The group have also been involved in wildlife friendly planting in other areas of the park.
The Lancashire Wildlife Trust have been involved in Milnshaw Park, encouraging volunteers to get active and help with the planting of some wildlife friendly plants within the park.
