Wild Trax: Hands-on with the Handling Collection
Event type: Workshop, special event
Location: NHM at Tring
Are you aged 14 - 18? Do you live in Buckinghamshire or Hertfordshire? Then come and join our Wild Trax event.
The Museum is full of special specimens including a large handling collection which is used to engage with the public. We need your help in maintaining this collection which may include photography, checking specimen locations, repinning insects or repairing specimens.
Bookings are essential and no accompanying adults please. All participants must bring a completed parent/guardian consent form to take part in the event.
At this event, you’ll meet experts and learn new skills before having the opportunity to join Wild Trax to put your talents to the test. Design and complete a project of your own (in groups or individually) with our support. The subject of the project is up to you as long as it’s based in Tring or Aylesbury and benefits nature in some way.
As recognition and thanks for your time volunteering, you’ll receive an award. It’s a helpful way to show your skills and interests to universities and future employers, especially if you’re interested in working with the natural world.
Wild Trax is a new and exciting youth project run in partnership by Berks, Bucks, Oxon Wildlife Trust, Herts and Middlesex Wildlife Trust and the Natural History Museum at Tring, and is supported by the Rothschild Foundation.
