Bumblebee Safari - Chesterfield area walking festival

About

Eastwood Park is a familiar sight for many, but you might not have known that it’s a bumblebee hotspot! 

On this safari, we’ll take a simple stroll around the park at a comfortable pace. As we walk, we’ll stop at important features for bumblebees and chat about their value.

Eastwood Park is full of beautiful, bee-friendly flowers, giving us lots of chances to see these fuzzy insects up close. There’s no need to bring anything but your normal park attire - and lots of curiosity.

Meeting at the Eastwood Park Sports Pavilion this walk will end at Bumblebee sculpture and information board (option to be accompanied back to the pavilion).
