Observing Insect-pollinators in Action at Rippon Lea Estate

With RMIT University’s Dr Luis Mata and Leap into Nature’s Christina Renowden, we have established a network of ‘pollinator observatories’ at Rippon Lea Estate.

Become a ‘citizen scientist’ and get informed and inspired about your local biodiversity.

At this workshop, you will learn how to identify several insect-pollinators, including native and non-native bees, flies, wasps and butterflies. We will then visit the pollinator observatories to examine plant-insect interactions.

We will also have a quiet insect-inspired art and craft corner for younger members of the family.

Speakers:
RMIT University’s Dr Luis Mata
Leap Into Nature’s Christina Renowden
