A day exploring natural science collections aimed at those who have little to no experience or knowledge of working with them.

About this Event

Have you ever wanted to find out more about natural science collections, their care and use? Are you a non-specialist in need of some information on how to facilitate more access to natural science collections? Answer yes to either of these questions and this day is FOR YOU.

Topics include:

• using natural science collections with school groups

• all the completely amazing things you can do with plant collections

• writing labels and interpreting natural science objects

• how to document your natural science collection with zero natural science knowledge

• natural science collection conservation

• what legislation should I be aware of?

• what parts of a natural science collection are dangerous?

NatSCA is arranging for natural science curators, collection managers and conservators to speak on everything from object handling to label writing to collection care.

Lunch is included.
