Join an entertaining presentation on our wonderful native bees with Dr Megan Halcroft. The workshop will also involve a hands-on workshop in the second part of the morning. Participants will be able to take away their own native bee habitat creation (materials will be provided).
Pollinator Week acknowledges our important and unique insect pollinators during our southern hemisphere spring. It is a designated week when community, business and organisations can come together to raise awareness of the importance of pollinators and support their needs. Through group activities, community members can learn together as they help to support our pollinators.
About the facilitator
Megan Halcroft began her PhD candidature at UWS in 2008 studying Austroplebeia australis and their potential as an alternative (to the honey bee) crop pollinator. Megan was awarded her degree of Doctor of Philosophy in 2013. During her many and varied studies she has become more appreciative of the importance of diversity within our lives and our environment. Megan hosts the informative website www.beesbusiness.com.au as she is passionate about wanting to share her passion for bees, of all kinds, with other people and increase community awareness of their importance in our lives.
Light refreshments will be provided.
