The Great Stag Weekend 5th-7th June

You may see stag beetles flying around on warm summer evenings, or you might dig up the large, white grubs, called larvae, in the garden. The stag beetle (the emblem of our Society) is our largest land beetle and the males have characteristic ‘antlers’ but are totally harmless. In fact, they desperately need our help.

These amazing creatures used to be a common sight, especially in the south of the UK, but sadly they are declining. They’ve even become extinct in a couple of European countries. We can’t let that happen here, so please join PTES in their national effort to save them this summer with their #StagWeekend from the 5th -7th June 2020!
