Introduction to Biological Recording Workshops

Post by christinej » 18 Apr 2013, 10:18

The Outer Hebrides Biological Recording Project is running a series of free evening workshops on Lewis and Harris, explaining how to get started in this rewarding hobby. The sessions are open to everyone, beginner or expert, and will give participants all the information they need to become biological recorders.

If you like nature and wildlife, this is a great opportunity to get involved in a fascinating citizen science project. Biological recording is open to anyone, and allows ordinary people to make a real contribution to our understanding of the natural world. You don’t have to be David Attenborough to take part – if you can identify a calling corncrake, know the names of a few wild flowers, or can count the spots on a ladybird you have what it takes to become a biological recorder!

The Outer Hebrides Biological Recording Project supports all recorders in the Western Isles, and works to promote, collect and share vital information about our island wildlife. Anyone coming along to the events will learn more about how they can contribute to the project, and will be shown how they can develop their recording and natural history skills. Everyone is welcome, from complete beginners to skilled experts.

Biological Recording – Getting Started workshops are being held on Wednesday 24th April, 7.30pm at the Harris Hotel, Tarbert and on Thursday 25th April, 7.30pm at the Bridge Centre, Stornoway.
