Would you like to learn how to identify different types of Bumblebee?

This workshop is currently fully booked and a waiting list is in operation. Apologies for any disappointment. Led by Bumblebee Conservation Trust, this session provides an introduction to key identification features of bumblebees, their different habitats and where to go for further information. You will also find out about the Bumblebee Conservation Trust's work to record and protect Bumblebees and how you can take part. The morning session indoors will introduce you to the theory then you will have time to put your skills into practise throughout the afternoon by visiting Fallin Bing.

Help us to better understand the wildlife found where you are, by recording what you see on the Forth Nature Counts i-Record form, whether it's in your garden, in the town or in the countryside.
