This summer Seven Lochs is teaming with butterflies, bees, beetles and all sorts of other bugs so we are brushing up on insect identification skills! From bees to butterflies to damsel and dragonflies will be learning how to survey, monitor and protect these gardeners' friends and perfect pollinators. Find out more on our What's On page.
And we also have lots of great events to see you through the schools holiday Spring-Summer events 2019 [1011kb], so it's a great time to visit the park, get active and get involved!
Join us at training events led by Buglife to learn more about the habitats, lifecycles of many of our Seven Lochs insect inhabitants and discover how to carry out your own survey in Seven Lochs Wetland Park.
In June we learned how learned how to tell a buff-tailed bumble from a common carder and how to identify many more species. We also discovered why they are declining, what we can do to save them and how to carry out our own bumblebee survey in Seven Lochs.
In July and August, we are focusing our attention on hoverflies, leaf beetles, lacewings and the ever-fascinating dragonfly so do pop along! The training events are free but booking is essential.
