Bumblebee

About

Do you know the difference between a bumblebee and a honeybee?

Did you know that there are 24 different species of wild bumblebee in the UK?

Join us on a bumblebee safari – a gentle stroll around Eastwood Park to look for bumblebees and find out more about how they live and work. Your guide will help you identify the different species we see along the way and share fascinating facts about these amazing insects – as well as some simple things we can all do to help them.

Find out which flowers bumblebees love the best and discover the link between bumblebees and tomato sauce!
