OPAL grants fund more exciting nature projects

The BMIG is developing an interactive guide to isopods

From running identification courses to developing interactive ebooks, OPAL grants have helped fund a diverse range of natural history society projects this year.

You can learn more about some of them by reading our 2010 case studies.




Launch of the OPAL Grants Scheme 2010

This is an important week for me - the launch of the next round of the OPAL Grants Scheme.  A big part of my work on OPAL is supporting all sorts of different wildlife groups including natural history societies and recording schemes.


Hello from the Natural History Museum

Hi Everyone!

We are the OPAL team based at the Natural History Museum in London, and we've decided to start a blog to keep you up to date with all our activities.  This photo shows three of our team (trying to identify a dragonfly!).  From left to right there's John Tweddle, Lucy Carter (me) and Gill Stevens.  I'm sure the other guys will put up their pictures and introduce themselves to you soon. 


Funding for your nature or wildlife group

OPAL has just launched a brand new small grants scheme for natural history societies and recording schemes in England.

The Natural History Museum will be distributing grants of between £500 and £2,000 to both local and national groups to help pay for equipment, events or promotion.
