Volunteers are vital to the work of CBDC in the role of volunteer recorders and also helping us in the office. Find out more about volunteering for CBDC.
We organise a small number of events each year that give our volunteers the chance to meet each other, gain new skills and practise recording.
|Bioblitz||Each year CBDC works with local conservation organisations to run a Bioblitz. The purpose is to record as many different species in a short period of time. These events are open the public and those interested in wildlife whether an experienced recorder or just beginning.|
|Annual Recorders Conference||This annual event attended by over 80 recorders provides an opportunity to find out about national and local recording activities.|
|Recording Days||A small programme, usually 4 days, over the summer months to visit and record wildlife sites that have not been visited for a while. These days are for experienced recorders and members of the local natural history groups and recording schemes.|
|Training Days||Cumbria has a long tradition of highly skilled recorders across a wide range of plants and animals. CBDC provides training on Biological Recording and works with local experts to run plant and animal Identification skills.|
