While we invite everyone, everywhere in Australia to join in the Wild Pollinator Count individually, it’s also fun to learn and count with other people!
We’re excited to be sharing a number of opportunities to get involved in pollinator awareness and observation activities this November.
In the Albury region, we have teamed up with the Slopes to Summit partnership of the Great Eastern Ranges Initiative with funding from the NSW Environmental Trust to offer some great events during the count week, including:
- Macro photography workshop, with fungi expert and nature photographer Alison Pouliot;
- Schools’ BioBlitz and count event;
- Various pollinator ID and count sessions, including at the Albury Botanic Gardens;
- Pollinator insects photography competition; and
- Special guest presentation by Michael Batley, native bee enthusiast, from the Australian Museum.
- Plus a photography competition with $1,000 of prizes up for grabs.
In the Sydney region, a number of Pollinator Week events are also organised to coincide with the Wild Pollinator Count, including open gardens and pollinator ID workshops. You can find out details of these on the Bees Business Facebook page.
And if you run your own wild pollinator count event (it’s easy – grab our kit and away you go), let us know – we’d be happy to add your listing to this site.
