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 (led by Martin Harvey) 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.
Location: Epping Forest
This course runs from 09:45 - 16:00 and fee includes FSC publication 'Bees of Britain'. Please bring a packed lunch.
