OPAL (open air laboratories) provide pollination surveys and other citizen science surveys and practical survey sessions for members of the public during the event. There will be information on the new Bee Friendly scheme, which is a new initiative supported by the Welsh Government and nature groups in Wales. The principle is very much like Fairtrade Towns in that action is taken under headings such as habitat, food, community involvement etc. If a project is successful it can then gain official accreditation as a Bee Friendly place. It is open to towns, schools, communities, businesses, places of worship etc. So come along for some more information for making your area a bee friendly place and again a bronze, silver or gold award. There will also be information and activities from the Bee Watch Planting for Pollinators Scheme and other organisations who are members of the Welsh Government Pollinator Task Force.
