Autumn is the season when some very attractive moths are flying, some of which have beautiful colours to match the falling leaves. This one-day course provides an introduction to moths; their identification, natural history and conservation. The afternoon will be a mix of presentations and activities (classroom and field-based) whilst the evening session will be spent moth-trapping around the Centre as darkness falls. NOTE TIMES: 2pm–10.30pmFind out more »
A workshop arranged for the Shropshire Spider Group by the Tomorrow's Biodiversity project. Pantheon (www.brc.ac.uk/pantheon) is an analytical tool developed by Natural England and the Centre for Ecology & Hydrology (CEH) to enable invertebrate species to be linked to the habitats and resources that they require. (Free for members of Shropshire Spider Group, contact the organisers to see if additional places are available.)Find out more »
