Pollinator Week NAC Workshop 18 November

Pollinator Week at the Cove.

North Arm Cove residents have been invited to participate in pollinator week by Megan Halcroft . Megan, one of only a few PhD qualified Australian specialists on native bees, has a wealth of experience and a deep love of bees, she captured the attention of over 85 people at a workshop hosted by North Arm Cove Community Gardeners in September last year with a lively presentation on the habits and roles of native bees in our environment.


“On behalf of Bees Business, Western Sydney University and the NSW Environmental Trust, I am inviting you to participate in the launch of the first–ever Australian Pollinator Week celebrations. We hope you will join us in this new and exciting project, to build community awareness of the importance of native pollinators and their role in driving biodiversity and ecosystem sustainability.” Megan


All residents and other locals are welcome to attend 10 am Wednesday 18 November at the North Arm Cove Community Hall under the pergola
