Each year of the project we are holding a series of invertebrate workshops on identification, recording, curation of reference collections and field craft to help boost the skills of beginners and experienced entomologists alike. We are also organising invertebrate recording days across the region to bring together the invertebrate recording community and facilitate improvements to baseline data coverage at selected important sites. Results will be published on this website. Other events include drop-in sessions to facilitate networking and mentoring.
RECORD Drop-in Session (Chester Zoo)
10th October | 7:15 pm - 10:00 pmFree
A monthly drop-in session supported by RECORD, Chester Zoo and the Tanyptera Project.
Time: 19:15 – 22:00
Venue: Mottershead Suite, Cedar House, Chester Zoo
No need to book or be present for the whole session.
These are informal evenings where recorders can come together and assist each other with queries and mentoring at a convenient time. There will be opportunities to practise using keys and microscopes in a supportive environment or you could use the session to simply meet up, have a cup of tea and discuss recording or spend time on other indoor activities.
You can also request World Museum reference specimens and literature in advance to help check identifications / practise with a particular group. Feel free bring your own material too.
If you are thinking of attending and would like more information, please email RECORD: firstname.lastname@example.org
