All-Ireland Pollinator Plan Conference
Local Authority/Council staff, Councillors, Planners, Engineers, Landscape Architects, Sustainability, Parks and Gardens staff, are invited to this conference on how public lands can be managed to support biodiversity.
Pollinating insects have suffered huge declines in recent decades, with one-third of our 99 Bee species at risk of extinction. The All-Ireland Pollinator Plan is a shared plan of action that aims to reverse those declines by increasing pollinator-friendly habitats across the island.
Training will be provided on the All-Ireland Pollinator Plan as well as an interesting line-up of guest speakers, who can offer advice on what to plant for pollinators; how to alter mowing regimes; and road verge maintenance. This will be an opportunity for knowledge exchange and to learn from the experiences of other project managers.
