NATIVE BEE WORKSHOP

Organised and ran a workshop for the public around Australian native bee species and the role they play in biodiversity in urban ecosystems. Promoted the talk and workshop in local areas, community groups and online through social media. I gave a talk to around 30 attendants about the benefits of encouraging native bees into their gardens, and simple measures to do so. I then lead a workshop on the construction of different varieties of “bee hotels” as supplementary habitat for native bees, and each attendant was able to build their own “bee hotel” to bring home and install in their own garden, boosting the biodiversity of their home garden.
