Bumblebee Identification

Bumblebee Conservation is organising two bumblebee identification workshops on 20th and 23 June 2018.

They will cover the identification of the most common bumblebee species and introduce the ecology, lifecycle and conservation of these important pollinators. These are aimed at beginners but will also be of interest to those with some knowledge

You will need lunch and suitable shoes for a short walk. Please take a hand lens or ID guide if you have them.

UHI Lews College, Liniclate, Benbecula

Saturday 23rd June, 10:00am – 3:30pm

The workshops are free, but if possible please book a place so that we know how many people are likely to attend.

New Publications - OHBR Leaflets

This year we have produced two new leaflets in the Wildlife of the Outer Hebrides series and an information leaflet on Marine Non-native Invasive Species. They are produced as part of the Natural Hebrides project, supported by Scottish Natural Heritage, to help connect more people with their natural environment.

Leaflets are available from tourist information offices, libraries, museums and in some cafes and hotels, and can be down-loaded from this page.
