Microscope ID Club
This group has been set up with help from the Leicestershire and Rutland Wildlife Trust to support members who wish to develop their identification skills using microscopic features. The group regularly meets at the Volunteer Training Centre (VTC) on the first Friday of the month 10:00 to 16:00. From 10:00 to 13:00 meetings are usually themed around particular topics led by members willing to share their experience and techniques. Microscopes are available for use until 16:00 when the VTC closes.
Members are encouraged to bring along their own equipment, but those dipping their toe into this fascinating area will have ample opportunity to try out the range of microscopes at the club before jumping in and buying their own kit.
