We are really pleased to announce that Sussex University Professor of Biology and author, Dave Goulson (A Sting in the Tail, A Buzz in the Meadow, among many other titles) will be giving an online talk for Avon Needs Trees on May 20th. Tickets are available through Eventbrite and Facebook.

The talk is entitled ‘Gardening for Bumblebees’ and will look at what we can all do to help our 270 species of bees. As many of us are aware, they are essential to our ecosystem but most are suffering dramatic declines in numbers.  If you have not come across David’s books before, they are highly commended – really informative, and written for the ordinary citizen and gardener. This will be a really entertaining – as well as useful – evening and we hope that you will come and support Avon Needs Trees. Many thanks.
