Introduction to social and cuckoo bumblebees

4th May 2019

Stephen Lings (St Albans). This workshop takes a look into the life and identification of these
much loved, but undervalued pollinators. Discover how to identify some of the common
bumble species found across the UK. The workshop comprises fieldwork in the morning
followed by an indoor workshop in the afternoon. Bumblebees are an essential part of the
British spring and summer yet many species are in steep decline. The workshop will conclude
with a discussion of why conserving these species is so important and what individuals can do
to help ensure their diversity and abundance once again. Please bring hand lens if you have
one.
