About the event

Join us for an online webinar with Julia Pigott to learn the basics of bumblebee identification. The Get Cumbria Buzzing! project wish to recruit volunteer recorders to help to monitor the abundance and diversity of bumblebees in Cumbria, and will provide you with all the help required to get you started. 

To make your sightings count we will teach you how to upload them onto the Cumbria Biodiversity Data Centre database. Your information will contribute valuable data to local and national biodiversity records. With your help we will be able to create the first Cumbrian Pollinator Atlas and will be able to track insect populations and movements. This valuable data will help inform us on the best ways to support pollinators across the county.
