Bee advocate and wildlife gardener Brigit Strawbridge Howard will give a fascinating illustrated talk on garden bees

About this event

Planet Earth is home to more than 20,000 different species of bee; as diverse in size and appearance, as they are in behaviour, life-cycles, and habitat requirements. Around 280 of these bee species can be found in Britain & Ireland.

In this illustrated talk, Brigit explains some of the basic differences between honeybees, bumblebees, and solitary bees, including their roles as pollinators, and their myriad relationships with flowering plants. The talk also touches on bee decline, and, most importantly, advises how we can all help by creating more pollinator-friendly gardens and habitats.

Brigit Strawbridge Howard is a wildlife gardener, amateur naturalist, and advocate of bees. Based in Cornwall, she writes and campaigns to raise awareness of the importance and diversity of native wild bees and other pollinating insects. She is author of Dancing with Bees: A Journey Back to Nature.

Part of our Insect Odyssey talk season.
