Bumblebee Identification Session at Chester Zoo

RECORD are holding their first Drop In Session of the year at Chester Zoo next month.

Wednesday 12th February, 6.30- 9 pm
Mottershead Suite, Cedar House, Chester Zoo

Book your place on eventbrite here

We’ll have museum specimens, guides and microscopes on hand to use, so you can familiarise yourself with the bumblebees you are likely to encounter in Cheshire this year. If you’re new to invertebrate identification, we’ll help get you started and work together to understand what features to look out for. For anyone with an existing interest, it’s a great chance to find out some more detail about this group through practicing species identification in a friendly setting.

*Please note* This is not a formal workshop, just an opportunity to 'give it a go' along with other interested people in a shared learning environment.

These Drop-in Sessions are run in collaboration with the Tanyptera project.

Whilst each session will have a theme, you’re welcome to work on your own tasks making use of the RECORD/World Museum facilities. You can request museum reference specimens, equipment and literature in advance to help check identifications / practice with a particular group. Feel free to bring your own material too.

There is no need to be present for the whole session but if you would like to attend please book via eventbrite.

Email info@record-lrc.co.uk for more information or to request specimens or equipment for the session.

If you book on but can no longer attend, please cancel your place on eventbrite or by emailing us as soon as you can so that someone else can take your place.

Kind regards,
