Welcome to the Forum.
You are not alone! I will shortly be attending an event when I will need to share my enthusiasm and my knowledge of bees such as it is and I worry that my mind will go blank when asked a question.
You’ve got a big idea there! 20 miles is a long way. Sounds a wonderful idea if you can get the landowners interested and sympathetic. I say go for it!
Where abouts are you in the country/which county are you?
Do share with the Forum how you get on.
I suppose the way to think about it is to think of how the bees will benefit & the more people who become aware of the problems they face the better.
My idea to cover the whole 20 miles is probably too grand however there are other locks (12 I think) so there must be other opportunities. I shall add a few photos as the work progresses (we begin next Sunday!) It is all being organised through the Inland Waterways Assoc. Ireland (Newry-Portadown branch) & it is hoped to raise the profile of the work of the IWAI & their goal of re-opening the canal. If in the process BBCT’s profile is also highlighted then that can only be a good thing. I must get on to “Volunteering” to send me promotional leaflets & so on.
