Baboro~Bees, Biodiversity and Me Workshop

October 15th, 2020

Children from 1st class upwards participated in the above workshop.

In this hands-on pre-recorded workshop, Lindsay Deely of Toodlelou Creativity Lab took a look at the role of  the humble bumblebee in biodiversity. Preserving biodiversity is a big task, but there are things that we can all do, right in our own backyards to make a difference.

Lindsay talked about the important things that bees do for us every day, how to become a citizen scientist and the simple things we can do to attract bees to our gardens. During the workshop she showed students how to make a home for solitary bees that was crafted using simple items found at home, in school, the recycling bin and in nature.
