Join the Irish Wildlife Trust for a free National Biodiversity Week event hosted by the National Botanic Gardens. The event is all about Ireland’s bees and will combine an informative talk with a bee id walk around the Gardens. No prior knowledge of bees is needed.
The event will begin at the Visitors Centre with a talk on the bees of Ireland and how we can help protect them. We will then take a walk around the National Botanic Gardens where we will demonstrate how to find and identify bees with a focus on bumblebees. The skills and knowledge gained from this event will allow you to begin monitoring bees in your own garden or community.
Children are welcome to attend but must be accompanied by a parent or guardian at all times.
