Our outreach team and volunteers are involved in events up and down the country, to help you find out more about our work.

We also recommend a number of other conservation-based exhibitions, activities and shows.


28th September
Volunteer training day - Stirling

Volunteering for the Bumblebee Conservation Trust is a great way to help us spread the word about the problems facing our favourite insects. We'll be holding a free Volunteer Training Day in Stirling on 28th September to help new and existing volunteers learn more about how they can get involved.

Attendees will be shown how to deliver bumblebee talks and walks, and produce exhibits for shows and fairs. Even if none of these take your fancy, we'll support you in whatever you want to do to help BBCT.

The event will take place at Stirling University from 09:45 - 3pm, with one hour for lunch (please bring a packed lunch). It is free to attend, but booking is essential. To book, email with your name and contact details (email and phone, in case of late cancellation).

A full agenda for the day will be sent to registered attendees before the event.


29th November
AGM and Members’ Day 2014

The Bumblebee Conservation Trust will be holding its 8th Annual General Meeting (AGM) on Saturday 29 November 2014 at the Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh.

We will be holding a Members’ Day at the same time as our AGM and would be delighted if our members could join us. 

The programme will consist of the AGM followed by a series of staff talks, as well as keynote presentations by the multi-award-winning journalist Simon Barnes and the RBGE’s Director of Science, Professor Pete Hollingsworth. 

It is hard for us to predict how many people will want to come along on the day. Places will be allocated on a first come first served basis.  Please email to register your interest in joining us.  We will be in touch over the next few weeks with more details of the day.
