Last month, we brought all these ingredients together to hold a weekend of citizen science workshops at the Glasgow Museums Resource Centre (GMRC), the first time we had run an event with the centre.


Eight ways to explore nature this Halloween


The nights are drawing in and Halloween is approaching, but enjoying this spooky celebration doesn't have to be just about eating sweets and scaring your friends.

Why not use this time of year to learn more about the creepier, crawlier creatures in your home, garden or local park? You could host a nature-themed Halloween party for your friends and family.

You might even discover that bats, bugs and slugs aren't as scary as you think.
