This 2-day course covers the identification and ecology of wild bees led by Steven Falk, author of the new 'Field Guide to the Bees of Great Britain and Ireland'.

The course will be on Saturday 6 and Sunday 7 May 2017 at Tyland Barn, Maidstone. On day one, Steven will show you how to identify bees under the microscope, plus how to collect, record and photograph them.

On day two (weather permitting) you will look at bees and their habitats at local wildlife sites and Steven will show you how to use an insect net and pooter. Bee ecology and conservation will be covered with lots of information on how you can help conserve and encourage them. Copies of the Field Guide are essential for this course and can be purchased on the day for £33.

The cost is £60 per person for this weekend course.
