LERC Wales Symposium

 

Saturday 25th April 2020 9.30am - 4pm

Centre for Alternative Technology, Machynlleth

 

A celebration of biological recording throughout Wales, this event will be an opportunity for recorders to learn new techniques and share ideas.

 

A Wales-wide event to celebrate the great work of biological recorders in all taxa, this symposium will concentrate on the new techniques being used to collect and manage wildlife records.

The morning will include talks on specimen digitisation, DNA barcoding and field survey techniques. During the afternoon delegates will get the opportunity to participate in workshops demonstrating these techniques and learn how they may apply them to their own recording efforts.

This is an excellent opportunity for wildlife recorders in Wales to come together to share best practice and learn new skills.

Please download the agenda for full details of the day, or see the programme for a brief timeline.

There will be an entrance fee of £20 for the event, with some free student places available. Please book your space via our Eventbrite listing.

Montgomeryshire Moth Group are joining us at CAT on Saturday evening for a moth trapping session.

Yn ddigwyddiad ledled Cymru i ddathlu gwaith gwych y cofnodwyr biolegol ym mhob tacsa, bydd y symposiwm yma’n canolbwyntio ar y technegau newydd sy’n cael eu defnyddio i gasglu a rheoli cofnodion bywyd gwyllt.

Bydd y bore’n cynnwys sgyrsiau ar ddigideiddio esiamplau, bargodio DNA a thechnegau arolygu maes. Yn ystod y prynhawn, bydd pawb yn cael cyfle i gymryd rhan mewn gweithdai sy’n dangos y technegau hyn a dysgu sut i’w rhoi ar waith gyda’u hymdrechion cofnodi eu hunain.
