iRecord 101 for Rangers is a 90-minute webinar introducing the iRecord online biological recording platform.

Learners are taught how to submit their wildlife observations into iRecord and how this benefits National Recording Schemes & Societies and Local Environmental Record Centres.

Webinar attendees will be taken through what information iRecord requires and how the verification system works for getting their biological records approved by experts.

Rangers will then be shown how they can use the activities feature of iRecord to collate data (as individuals or teams of staff and volunteers) for the countryside and greenspace sites that they manage.

The webinar will consist of a 60-minute presentation (including live demos on the iRecord platform) from biological recording specialist Keiron Derek Brown, followed by a 30-minute live audience Q&A session with the webinar tutor.

This event is delivered jointly by the Biological Recording Company and Countryside Management Association
