We hold free or heavily subsidised invertebrate workshops on identification, recording, curation and field craft to help boost the skills of beginners and experienced entomologists alike. These are complemented with drop-in sessions to facilitate mentoring and networking. We also organise invertebrate recording days across the region to bring together the invertebrate recording community and facilitate improvements to baseline data coverage at selected important sites.

Join tutor Richard Gallon at the World Museum Liverpool for this introduction to the British Harvestmen fauna.
British Harvestmen are generally large arachnids which are easily encountered in a variety of habitats; from seashore to the summits of high mountains. With only 31 species and the availability of several excellent identification resources, it is surprising that these arachnids are so under-recorded. Several species new to Britain have been discovered in recent years.
This course will introduce you to the British Harvestmen fauna. Collecting and identification techniques will be given. There will be plenty of opportunity to practice identification with specimens and you are more than welcome to bring your own specimens to work with.
Tea, coffee and biscuits will be provided but participants should bring a packed lunch or use World Museum café
Adults only (18+)
