Event description
Making a home for native bees is a great way to start increasing biodiversity in your backyard.

About this event

One of the biggest challenges for the future of our natural heritage is arresting the decline in biodiversity due to habitat loss, change in land use and climate change. Making a home for native bees is a great way to start increasing biodiversity in your backyard.

Sylvia Cornwell, proudly known as ‘The Mad Bee Lady’, has been keeping honeybees for 40 years and is a passionate and informed advocate of all things concerning bees. Sylvia will introduce you to this diverse and fascinating group of insects with a dynamic discussion about the ecology and importance of native bees to our ecosystems.

After a delicious morning tea, you will be shown how to make a Bee Hotel designed to attract the beautiful Blue Banded Bee, and receive one to take home. The day with finish with a tour of the Retford Park garden to look at how to make your garden more bee friendly.
