Naturalist Brigit Strawbridge will reveal the fascinating and often hidden world of these vital pollinators
The Heritage Coast U3A and Turn Lyme Green are joining forces to welcome North Dorset naturalist Brigit Strawbridge to their next meeting on Friday, January 12.
She will talk about the fascinating and often hidden world of bees.
A wildlife gardener and bee enthusiast who writes, speaks and campaigns to raise awareness of the importance of our native wild bees, Brigit will give an illustrated talk explaining the differences between honeybees, bumblebees and solitary bees, describing their lifecycles, behaviour and the roles different species play in pollinating different flowering plants.
She will also speak about the problems they all face, the reasons for their decline, and what we can do to help sustain these vital pollinators.
