Autumnwatch – Museum pests and more!

Join us for a conversation with Helena Jaeschke, Conservation Development Officer from South West Museum Development, to find out more about autumn activities in the museum. Putting your collections to bed for the winter, preparing for winter weather events, clusterflies and other hibernating pests. Refresh your housekeeping preparations and pest knowledge, and know what signs to watch out for in your museum.

Insightful, interactive and informal, come along to gain new insights from our guests, meet colleagues from the region, and connect with the MDY team. Everyone who works and volunteers in museums in our region is most welcome, including museum freelancers who want to stay connected during this time.
