About the Event
The beautiful Bishop’s Palace Gardens is bursting with colour in summer, attracting butterflies and bees to enjoy its many flowers🌸🌼 Join me for a morning identification session to spot butterflies and bees around the gardens. You'll learn how to identify common species and discover which flowers are their favourites.
Suitable for adults from 12+. Under 18s must be supervised by an adult. 🐕 No dogs please as they are not permitted inside the gardens.
(If you want a more in-depth workshop about bumblebee ecology, lifecycle and how to identify all our common species, one of my Beginner's Bumblebee Workshops would be ideal!)
How to get there: We will meet at the eastern entrance to the gardens at the end of Canon Lane under the large stone archway (click here for a map). Directions: Opposite the shop 'Kids Stuff Toys' on South Street is a large stone archway, walk through this and continue to the end of Canon Lane to reach the second stone archway, this is where we will meet. Please note there is no car park here - the nearest car parks are South Pallant or South Gate which are just a few minutes walk away.
How to book: Select the number of attendees below and pay online. Or email me email@example.com to book your space and pay via bank transfer.
What to bring: Sturdy boots, suncream, water, hand sanitiser. If you have a bug net/lens/pot please bring these, otherwise I have things to share around (all will be sanitised).
What if it rains? The event will be rescheduled and you will be notified 24 hours before via email.
