Friday, 31st May, 10am – 1:00pm Gisburn Forest

Immerse yourself in the world of bumblebees on this Forest of Bowland National Landscape/Yorkshire Dales Millennium Trust Hay Time workshop! 

Learn how to identify Bowland’s more common bumblebee species in the lovely surroundings of the meadow at Gisburn Forest – and find out all about our Beewalk volunteer opportunities.

The morning will begin with a short indoor presentation on the ecology of bumblebees, and some key identifying features of our more common species. We’ll then head outside to see what bumblebees we can find in the meadow and surrounding area.

There will be information on our “Beewalk” programme and how you could put your new skills into practice by joining our volunteer project and surveying on one of our pre-set transects. Sites are located throughout the Forest of Bowland and across the Yorkshire Dales, so a great excuse for some days out!

After the session, feel free to buy a tasty lunch in the café, or stay on  and enjoy the wider forest landscape.

Under 18s must be accompanied by an adult.

Free but booking is essential.
