Buglife are running two Bumblebee Identification Courses with the Essex Field Club, at Essex Wildlife Trust’s Chafford Gorges Nature Park.

 

The Bumblebee ID course days will consist of a morning classroom session on bumblebee ecology and identification, led by the Essex invertebrate expert, Peter Harvey, followed by a walk around the site to practice the new identification skills. It will also include a session on how to use your new skills to help national bumblebee recording schemes. This is a great opportunity to learn some new skills and contribute to the conservation of bumblebees in the county. You don’t have to be a regular visitor to the site at all, as the survey methodology and recording can be used anywhere to produced valuable information for Bumblebee Conservation Trust

o   The courses are £10, with all of this going to the Essex Wildlife Trust’s Chafford  Gorges

o   Tea, coffee and biscuits will be provided

o   There are two workshops, but they will be the same content so you only need to go to one unless you’re especially keen!

o   The two dates are Saturday 23rd July and Saturday 13th August, both running from 10am until 4pm

o   To book, please call the Chafford Gorges Nature Park on 01375 484 016
