Following up on the great success of the Native bee hotel making workshop at the annual Bushcare picnic in April, Bushcare is launching “The Pollinators” group web page … an online tool for everyone to get involved and post what pollinators are in the hotels, any information you have or would like and gain access to recources and events about pollinators – bees, flies, butterflies, birds …
The coordinator for this page is Phil Nelson, I think you will all remember him from the day – very busy with a drill in hand.
So send your information to him via email and he will upload it to the page.
Local resident Bronwen Roy, bee researcher and enthusiast from Western Sydney University will be hosting an Australian Pollinator Week event at the Glenbrook Native Plants Reserve (Great Western Highway, Glenbrook, opposite the Information Centre) . She will have a stingless bee hive, solitary bee hotels for sale and will conduct a pollinator count at 2 O’Clock in the afternoon.
