The Urban Naturalist
Saturday 24th June : 2-4pm
The Manchester Museum runs friendly, practical workshops run by leading naturalists. From wild food-foraging and composting to bird song and insect identification, explore biodiversity on our doorstep.
Join Leila Nicholson, a local bee expert, as she leads a workshop focused on the important role that bees play in the environment, including urban areas. You will explore the distinguishing features of bees that can allow you to tell the sex and species of the bees you encounter, using microscopes and magnifying glasses. There will also be an opportunity to learn how to catch bees without harming them, which in turn will help us discover what species are visiting the gardens around Manchester Museum.
Event to be held at the following time, date, and location:
Saturday, June 24, 2017 from 2:00 PM to 4:00 PM (BST)
Manchester Museum Oxford Road M13 9PL Manchester
