Slugs – Survey and Identification Workshop
Saturday 15th June
Slugs are a grossly under-recorded invertebrate which is odd as they are abundant, often observed and fairly easy to identify. This workshop will begin with an introduction to slugs and their identification and specimens brought by participants will be identified. The afternoon session will include collecting and recording slugs in Portland Park and Bentinck Banks Nature Reserves for identification back at the Portland Park Visitor Centre. By the end of the day you will be able to identify several species and the Wildlife Trust will have gathered species records for the reserves. Booking is essential. Meet at 10.00am at the Visitor Centre, Lindley’s Lane.
