Saturday July 7th saw over 100 people descend on the playing field in Nash for the annual fete – and Living Levels were there too! Local children had the chance to experience the trials and tribulations of our rarest bee on the Levels, the Shrill Carder. So as the saying goes ‘To appreciate a bee, you must become a bee…’ - which is exactly what they did as they discovered the daily relationship between pollinators and flowers in the ‘Battle of the Shrill Carder Bee’ game.
The Living Levels Pollinating the Levels Project aims to sure up habitat for this species to ensure its survival into the future and combat the trend in fragmenting its habitat by connecting up areas of wildflower rich habitat across the landscape.
