We are running a drop-in event from 11am to 3pm for National Insect Week on Friday 24 June, at the Freshwater Biological Association, Windermere. Free event and no need to book, everyone welcome. Come along to the lake shore and have a look at the insect (and other invertebrate) life that lies beneath (and flies above) the lake.
The FBA is looking for a volunteer to research, list and photograph our herbarium specimens, which date from the 1930s to the 1960s. This is a great opportunity for someone seeking experience in curating natural history specimens, and will also offer the chance to gain knowledge in other areas of collections work and science education.
This placement will last between 3 to 8 weeks, depending on availability. Ideally the applicant should be able to work between the hours of 10am and 4pm, a minimum of 2 days per week, starting mid-July 2016.
