Buxton Field Club’s next talk (for bumblebee lovers!)
Pollinating the Peak
Saturday 13th November Zoom (members). Buxton Field Club youtube channel livestream https://tinyurl.com/35337jmb (non-members) 7.00pm
Join Andrew Joly, one of the local volunteers for The Bumblebee Conservation Trust, for an introduction to the wonderful world of bumblebees, the work of the Pollinating the Peak team, and the national monitoring scheme, BeeWalk.
This illustrated talk will uncover some surprising ways we all benefit from the special relationship between bumblebees and flowers; explore the threats bumblebees face in the modern world and share some simple things we can all do to help.
By the end of the session we are also confident that you will be familiar with most, if not all of the eight common bumblebees you’re most likely to see in Derbyshire – as well as being introduced to our own local hero the Bilberry bumblebee.
