The project’s work focusses in three keys areas of the North Cornwall B-Line, including around Hayle and The Towans, Perranporth and Cubert, and Trevose and Polzeath. Along the wider North Cornwall B-Line we will also run workshops and one-to-one site visits to help people enhance their farms, gardens or businesses to create more places for pollinators.
If you live in one of our key areas and would like to support our project and create a wildflower area in your garden, please meet us at one of our events and collect a mini meadow kit to sow at home. More information about how to create your mini meadow can be found under Downloads on the top right hand side of this webpage. Please make sure you share your wonderful work with us and add your wildflower area to our B-Lines map.
If you’d like to get involved in the project there will be opportunities at our talks, workshops, and survey days. We are also working with schools and local communities to introduce them to the threatened bee species they share their local area with, and encourage people to take action to aid nature’s recovery.
We’ve created an education pack for primary schools which can be found under Downloads on the top right of this page. It contains resources and activities for both key stage one and key stage two to teach pupils more about Cornwall’s beautiful bees and why and how they can help look after them. The pack is designed to be self-led so can be used by any school, anywhere. Please do share this with any teachers in Cornwall and together we can make a real difference and ensure that these bee populations survive into the future!
Please join our Cornwall mailing list to be kept up to date with events and activities.
