To protect our precious pollinators, we’re excited to be working in partnership with Northumberland Wildlife Trust to deliver the Beelines North East. The project 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.

Beelines Activity Pack

We want to help as many people as possible to get involved with Beelines North East, so we’ve created a whole host of activities to help you have a bee-rilliant time learning more about pollinators and their environment.

Beelines Educational Visits and Resources

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. Or you can download our lesson resources to lead the sessions yourselves.
