Events

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.

Blooms for Bees Events

Blooms for Bees is a partnership initiative, launching on the 20 June 2016 to promote bee-friendly gardening. The aim is to engage the public and explore which bumblebees visit their gardens and allotments and discover which flowers are bumblebee favourites.

You can visit the Blooms for Bees events page to register for one of the fantastic free talks, walks and workshops starting today!

Campaign for the Farmed Environment Events

The Campaign for the Farmed Environment are delivering a series of events over the next few weeks on pollinators and the great benefits to farm business. The events are about demonstrating to farmers how they can help our vital pollinators on their farms. To book your place visit events.
