We are delighted to announce a new citizen science project to track the distribution of bees in the North East!

Bees play an important role in the ecosystem yet find themselves under threat. To protect them, we need to know as much as we can about their distribution.

Urban or rural, beginner or expert, naturalist or nature lover, we want you to get out and about this summer in search of five distinctive and beautiful bee species – all of which could be found in your own garden!

Join the NHSN Bee Group at a special launch evening for an exclusive first-look at the project as you learn to identify the five species at the heart of the scheme and hear how you can contribute to your records. Everyone welcome to attend, free of charge.
