It’s Australian Pollinators Week at Brisbane Botanic Gardens Mt Coot-tha from 13-21 November which is dedicated to exploring the fascinating world of plant pollination.
Pollinators are part of a near invisible ecosystem ensuring that plants reproduce and provide seeds, flowers, fruits and the next generation of plants.
Join the team from Brisbane City Council to learn all about this vital interaction and how to support the pollinators in your own backyard.
An exciting program of free events, activities and workshops will include offerings for all ages, with highlights including:
- A Bee Story theatre show (two shows per day on Saturday 13 and Sunday 14 November) – suitable for children and families and incorporating a kaleidoscope of circus, acrobatics, dance and live music
- workshops from Bee One Third including beeswax candle making
- information and display from Bat Rescue Inc – many species of plants rely on bats to pollinate their flowers – join us to learn all about these amazing creatures.
- workshops and tours with the Botanic Gardens Education Team
- specialised guided walks – ‘The Buzz: All Things Bees’.
Registrations are required for most events, as places are limited. To view all events and register, visit the What’s On section of Council’s website and search ‘pollinators’.
