Be Kind to Nature Workshop


Workshop is for children aged 7 and under centred around climate action and creative ways to help the local bee populations.

June is an ideal time for children to make real world observations about their local wildlife when the weather is nice, and channel these observations into positive action. As two species of native Irish bees are already extinct, it is a high priority issue for climate change, and an easy one for children to engage with and feel as though they are making a real difference. This is a standalone creative workshop designed to help young children understand biodiversity in simple, accessible terms, and also instruct them on ways they can protect our endangered insect populations.

Time: 10am  Where:
