Pollinator Course Saturday 21sy May

Together with the Mayo Naturalists’ Field Club, we will be holding a pollinator study day this coming Saturday near Straide Co Mayo – May 21st from 10:00 am to 3:30 pm

The morning will focus on the main Irish pollinator groups, their current status, lifestyles and habitat needs. Weather permitting we will observe pollinator activity in the immediate area: bumblebees, Spring butterflies and early hoverflies.

In the afternoon we will take a walk to look at different habitat types and pollinator forage plants, review the aims of the All-Ireland Pollinator Plan 2015-2020, and discuss recently published strategies for putting them into practice at local level.

Cost: €10.00 (kindly subsidised by Mayo Heritage)

Please bring: any observations on pollinator activity in your neighbourhood this spring; rain-gear, stout shoes, and a packed lunch. Tea and coffee will be provided.

Booking essential as places are limited. Please fill out the form below to book or for more information.
