What bees, butterflies and hoverflies have you seen around your garden and local fields this Summer?

Learn about the some of the commoner species we have in Ireland; their pollination work, life cycles and habitat needs, and the current problems of declining pollinator populations that we face in Ireland.

This short course has been timed to coincide with the launch of the all Ireland plan to protect wild pollinators, and will provide participants with information on the plan, and how individuals and organisations can help to support it.

Weather permitting, we will check out pollinators and favoured forage plants in the walled garden.
