There will be a bumblebee ID and surveying workshop at Silent Valley near Kilkeel on May 9th.
Join us for this free event to learn about one of our most important groups of pollinating insects. Learn about bumblebee ecology, how to identify the common species, and how to record them. Weather permitting, we'll go outside for a bumblebee safari and get up close and personal with these wonderful insects.
Booking is essential, and you can reserve your place by emailing Siobhan.email@example.com. This workshop is a training event for the Bumblebee Monitoring Scheme, which collects data on the bumblebees of Ireland and works closely with the Bumblebee Conservation Trust.
This event is not suitable for young children.
Please wear appropriate clothing and footwear for a walk outdoors.
