Entomological techniques: building a pinned reference collection

Saturday, July 1, 2017

This one day workshop will take you through everything you need to know in order to start building a pinned entomological reference collection.  We will cover the legal and ethical issues surrounding collecting, the practical fieldwork skills required to collect specimens, and then move to the classroom to learn and practice the skills involved in preserving, setting and pinning invertebrates.

 The course will be lead by Shropshire based entomologists Pete Boardman and Ian Cheeseborough, with support from the FSC Tomorrow’s Biodiversity project.

10.30am - 3.30pm  Course fees: £25
