‘Irish Bumble Bees’ by Dr Una Fitzpatrick.
Wednesday, 24th April, 2013 at 8.pm in the Angler’s Rest Hotel.
Our final talk for this Spring will be given by Dr Una Fitzpatrick, Ecologist with the National Biodiversity Data Centre.
Bees are Ireland’s most important pollinators and provide a vital ecological and economic service to society. However of the 101 different species of bee that occur in Ireland, around 30 are threatened with extinction and three have become extinct over the last 80 years.
Everyone is welcome. Our talks are free, but any donations given on the night are used for projects of the Headford Environment Group.
