The Urban Naturalist: Bees
Saturday 24 June
Free. Please Book. Adult Programme
Friendly, practical workshops run by leading naturalists. From wild food-foraging and composting to bird song and insect identification, explore biodiversity on our doorstep.
Join Leila Nicholson, a local bee expert, as she leads a workshop focused on the important role that bees play in the environment, including urban areas.
We will explore the distinguishing features of bees that can allow you to tell the sex and species of the bees you encounter, using microscopes and magnifying glasses.
There will also be an opportunity to learn how to catch bees without harming them, which in turn will help us discover what species are visiting the gardens around Manchester Museum.
