Bees, Hoverflies and Flowers: Pollinators and Pollination
30 June 2018 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm£45
Bees, hoverflies and other pollinating insects play an enormously important role in natural habitats and agricultural systems alike. Some pollinators are known to be declining, and their conservation is a cause for concern. This course introduces the insects that play a role in pollination, helping you to recognise them, understand how they interact with flowering plants, and find out how to play your part in conserving them.
This course introduces a range of pollinating insects, including the variety of different bees and hoverflies: how to find them, how to recognise them and what their role is in pollination. We’ll be able to explore the rich flower meadows and hedgerows of Bushy Park. A number of projects have been set up recently to help record and conserve pollinators, and you’ll be able to find out how to take part in these.
