Veronica Santorum leads the way on the Limerick’s Buzzing workshop being held on the UL grounds today. This workshop gives an opportunity for those with responsibility for management of green spaces in Limerick to learn from the French experience of urban wild bee conservation and to forge new approaches to biodiversity management and interpretation.
It shows how to recognize and manage existing habitats and create new nesting, feeding and overwintering habitats for wild bees on large green spaces e.g. urban estates, parks, graveyards, roadsides, school grounds and it is facilitated by Frederic Vyghen of the LIFE funded Urbanbees project in France (involving the Regional Authority of the Rhones-Alpes and City Councils of Lyons and Villeurbanne in France, Natural History Museum London and other partners).
