100 sites across Greater Bristol will be made more pollinator friendly with the support of Bristol City Council, Friends-Of groups and a huge team of volunteers. Work has already started with volunteers planting wildflowers, orchards and meadows.
Buglife is looking for new sites to turn into buzzing hotspots, including wildflower meadows, gardens and bee hotels. Do you know of any unused or unloved green spaces in BS3 or across the city? Please get in touch !
Through enhancing sites, Urban Buzz aims to improve habitat connectivity across the city, making pollinator populations more resilient to change (e.g. development, climate change, pollution) and allowing movement between sites. Working closely with communities Urban Buzz aims to ensure that pollinators needs are better understood and habitats are better managed in the future.
Volunteers are vital to the success of the project. Can you lend a hand for a day’s digging, planting, scrub-clearing or surveying?
For more information, including news on Urban Buzz, talks, events and training opportunities, volunteering or potential new sites for transformation, please email Hayley firstname.lastname@example.org.
