Pollinator Week Activity
Sunday, 15 November, 2015 @ 10:00 am – 4:00 pm
You are invited to take part in a practical activity as part of Pollinators week.
We will be:
• Building a bee / insect hotel – using a collection of easily acquired nesting substrate such as hollow stems from garden prunings, pine cones, pre-drilled wooden blocks and layers of bark.
• Planting a pollinator garden – group activities planting flowering plants (native and exotic) to feed pollinators throughout the year.
• Catching and identifying some pollinators – using insect nets, jars, magnifying glasses, communication devices and cameras.
• Conducting a ‘wild pollinator count’ activity – demonstrating how to observe and count insects and entering data onto website. Such information can be shared with friends and family as well as schools and interest groups.
