As a key partner in the Pollinator Project, the Jersey Biodiversity Centre is excited to host a range of free virtual pollinator themed activities for all ages this summer. Whilst we are looking forward to meeting school children, community groups and the general public after covid restrictions are lifted, we are making our activities and talks virtual to promote the importance of our insect pollinators and why you need to Bee Friendly.
We have a range of talks and activities focusing on helping you discover, learn and get involved: and how you can Bee Friendly. Activities include:
- What are pollinators.
- Making a home for pollinators.
- Get involved with an insect pollinator survey.
The talks and activities will be hosted on Zoom. Tickets can be reserved through Eventbrite. Talks will be advertised through Facebook @JerseyBiodiverstiyCentre.
Schools are being invited to join and the Jersey Biodiversity Centre can arrange virtual LIVE lessons using Google Meets and Zoom to meet your students and staff. Primary schools will receive a menu of the pollinator lesson choice available. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange your virtual lesson.

Sarah Maguire, the Education and Outreach officer of The Jersey Biodiversity Centre says “The talks and activities are designed to inspire you to Bee Friendly, support pollinators and help save these important creatures. ”
Kate Kirk, Director of Marketing at Ogier said “We’re excited to be involved with the project and impressed that the team from the Jersey Biodiversity Centre and PollinatorProject.je have developed this programme of virtual activities given we can’t get together to share the talks and activities right now. Education about pollinators is absolutely crucial and at a time when many of us have enjoyed getting out into nature as a welcome escape during recent challenging times, this programme will be a brilliant way to become Bee Friendly and find out what we can all do to help insect pollinators.”
