Trail stop number 13 - St Andrews School project
Learn more about the Common carder bee here.
In this joint project to produce an extra Bee Trail point, I got together with St Andrews School in Laverstock. First we looked at pollinators in general with an outdoor 'Bee Safari' in the school grounds to observe and notice how different pollinators are from each other. Then we got creative and let our imaginations run wild as we looked at our chosen pollinator, the Common Carder Bee, which became inspiration for some wonderful artwork by the students.
This project was funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund as part of the wider Boardwalk project at Whitebridge Spinney, where the bee trail sign has been placed.
See more about the Boardwalk project in general here or go to the Laverstock and Ford Facebook page for up to date news.
Students art work - See some of the Bee art that the children produced during my time with them, in the Bee Trail App when you get to this trail point!
