Lead a guided walk

Experiencing nature is always the best way to gain an appreciation of it!

Taking part in a guided bumblebee safari can be a great way to enthuse people about these amazing creatures. It can also encourage them to take action by planting bee-friendly flowers in their gardens/ communities.

With such a small team at BBCT it is impossible for us to run guided walks all over the UK but you could help us to widen our reach by running your own bumblebee safaris.

If you live near a wildflower meadow or have a garden that is buzzing with bumblebees we can support you with guidance materials about organising, advertising and running your own safari. We guarantee you’ll love guiding the walk and you’ll learn more about bumblebees and flowers than you thought possible.

“Bumblebees are one of the most endearing insect visitors to any garden. Their furry, colourful bodies and clumsy flight always raise a smile, but they also do an essential job. Without their pollination services many flowers would produce no seeds, and fruit and vegetable yields would suffer.”
