How to get involved

To help inform conservation efforts we want to develop people’s expertise in some important and accessible groups of invertebrates. During the first year we will be offering training for beginners. There will be six, two day workshops over spring and summer. These will be paired alongside field trips and surveys to help people to improve their practical skills.
More advanced training will be offered in years two to five. There will be a wider range of public events to encourage people to gather data at key sites throughout the North Pennines.
