We hold free and heavily subsidised invertebrate workshops and webinars 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 run an invertebrate recording day programme to bring together the invertebrate recording community and facilitate improvements to baseline data coverage at selected important / under-recorded sites.

Mining Bees Webinar

19th March | 1:00 pm - 2:15 pm

The Andrena are the largest genus of bees in the UK with 68 species. They typically nest in light soils excavated by the females, hence the common name of mining bees. Focusing on the common species of North West England, World Museum’s Tony Parker will give an introduction to their identification, ecology, and behaviour. We will end with an interactive question and answer session.

Please book your space via Eventbrite and you will be sent information on how to join the webinar.
