Learn all about insect pollinators and how to identify them with Phil Ward MCIEEM; County invertebrate and beetle recorder for Radnorshire in Mid Wales, secretary of the Radnorshire Invertebrate Group and part-time invertebrate tutor for Aberystywyth University.
Via indoor workshops and field-work, observe, collect, handle, identify and record a wide range of pollinating insects including bees, butterflies & hoverflies.
Learn about pollinating insects: their needs, which flowers they prefer, how to encourage them, the use of garden flowers, and of course how to tell them apart!
A range of collecting equipment, identification books, microscopes and specimens will all be available during the course. Handouts will be provided for you to keep.
This workshop is suitable for everyone; from beginners to the more experienced alike. It is also very suitable for gardeners who want to know more about pollinators and which garden flowers are best for them. Kindly sponsored by Wales Biodiversity Partnership.
