April - Monthly Meeting
Saving (wild) Bees in Munich – a Flowerful Task!
Bees are among the most important pollinators of crops and wild plants, providing enormous economic and ecological benefits. As we now know, both bee abundance and bee species diversity are highly important. Still, depending on the region, 25% to 68% of the Central European bee species are currently endangered due to the loss and degradation of natural and semi-natural habitats. As agriculture has intensified, many of the species actually survive as refugees in the cities, depending on the plants of roadsides, gardens and even balconies.
Dr. Ulrike Wagner, biologist and head of the Ecological Education Center (ÖBZ), run by the Münchner Volkshochschule (MVHS), invites you to sneak into the fascinating world of wild bees, bumblebees and little wasps. You will be surprised, how easy, colourful and interesting it can be to offer more food plants and the right breeding-opportunities to them, even on a city balcony.
Also you are invited to visit the diverse insect gardens at the ÖBZ near Arabellapark in summer.
NEW MEMBERS COFFEE MEET!
Current, potential and new members are equally welcome to come and share experiences or just enjoy a chat at the New Members’ Coffee Morning. It is held first Monday every month (except August & December) and is a more personal way for potential and new members to learn more about the club and to meet one another and longer-term club members.
Next meet: Monday, 1st April, 10:30 – 12:00
