BEE Amazed! Bees and pollinators are AMAZING!

Join us for this exciting talk highlighting the importance of pollinators in cities led by a leading pollination expert.

During a career spanning more than 30 years, Professor Jeff Ollerton has established himself as one of the world’s leading experts on pollinators and pollination, so who better to tell us about the positive roles that urban environments can play for our native pollinators, and the potential threats of city living?

Come along to this important and interesting talk and learn more about how to protect bees in the urban environment.

Presented in partnership with Holland Park Ecology Centre, this talk is offered as part of a series of talks for the Borough's Bee Superhighway.
