Bees and Beyond: Ecosystem Services at a Garden Scale with The Biological Recording Company

Thursday 5th September, 2024 - 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm


Free webinar with Dr Linda Birkin exploring the importance of gardens for the wider environment in which they are nestled.

Gardening success and invertebrate activity are deeply intertwined, for better or worse! Demonstrating that the beneficial side of this relationship vastly outweighs the negative is hugely important for maximising the ecological value of gardens – as well as improving horticultural outcomes. Pollination and pest control are the easiest of these ‘ecosystem services’ to illustrate at garden scales. These Buzz Club projects aim to highlight both in practical and entertaining ways.

Dr Linda Birkin is a specialist in citizen science and urban entomology. She has a particular interest in ecological outreach and wildlife gardening.

entoLIVE is delivered by the Biological Recording CompanyBritish Entomological & Natural History SocietyRoyal Entomological Society and Amateur Entomologists’ Society, with support from Buglife and the Field Studies Council.
