Buzzing Biodiversity of Galway City – A bee walk to the beach

Apr 17
May 20, 2018 @ 2:00 pm – 4:00 pm

Join the Irish Wildlife Trust for a guided biodiversity walk through some of Galway City’s best bee spying spots. Protecting our pollinators is an effective way to take action for biodiversity. At this event, we walk through some of Galway City’s bee habitat and learn how to identify and care for our Irish bumblebees. The walk will start opposite the Huntsmans Inn and follow the shore of Lough Aralia along hedgerows and over to Ballyboughane Beach where we will hopefully find plenty of bees on the shoreline wildflowers growing there such as clover and ox-eye daisy. Butterfly nets and viewing jars will be available so everyone can enjoy the fun of netting a bee to have a closer look before letting them go on the merry way. It is great fun for all the family.

The event is suitable for all and participant should wear comfortable walking clothes and footwear.

MEETING POINT: Car park opposite Huntsman Inn, Galway City
