92 days to go to National Insect Week

Bees, Hoverflies & Flowers course at Forty Hall

Saturday, June 25, 2016 - 09:45 to 16:00

Bees, hoverflies and other pollinating insects play an enormously important role in natural habitats and agricultural systems alike. Some pollinators are known to be declining, and their conservation is a cause for concern. This course introduces the insects that play a role in pollination, helping you to recognise them, understand how they interact with flowering plants, and find out how to play your part in conserving them.

Martin Harvey tutors regularly for FSC. He is an ecologist specialising in insect conservation and recording, and has worked on projects including iSpot at The Open University, and iRecord for the Biological Records Centre. Martin runs recording schemes for moths and soldierflies.

This course runs from 09:45 to 16:00; please bring a packed lunch.
