To protect our precious pollinators, we’re excited to be working in partnership with Northumberland Wildlife Trust to deliver the Beelines North East, a project which will create a network of 45 nectar-rich public sites, aiming to plant 2,500 trees, 25,000 bulbs and creating 18 hectares of grassland. The work will target young people, with traineeships available including for young offenders, alongside volunteering, and schools work opportunities.
SOLD! (for Nature)
We are creating small patches of wildflower meadow across our parks and greenspaces in Newcastle to improve diversity in our grasslands and increase the nectar sources available for pollinators. These areas have been 'Sold' for Bees, butterflies and other pollinating insects.
Beelines Educational Visits
Our education sessions are free of charge and designed to allow your class to discover and interact with nature in their local green space, learning more about plants, pollinators, and their conservation.
Become a Nature Education Volunteer
We are looking for enthusiastic volunteers to work alongside our Education Officer, helping run fun, interactive activities for school children, families, and the local community.
