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.

Yarrow Valley Country Park Invertebrate Recording Day

17th August | 10:00 am - 4:00 pm

A general invertebrate recording day at Yarrow Valley Country Park

Yarrow Valley Country Park was first established in 1987 on land previously used for bleaching, dyeing, calico printing and mining. The park is now an important wildlife resource both within the district and county, with 14 biological heritage sites accounting for 60 per cent of the park. The most important ecological feature of the park is the presence of large areas of mature ancient woodland.

Please be aware that whilst we welcome invertebrate recorders of all experience levels, our recording days are not taught or guided sessions. (Check out our webinars/workshops here).

Events will be subject to cancellation if there is an adverse weather forecast.

Booking essential: Further details regarding meeting place etc. will be circulated before the day.
