This session is being delivered as part of Buglife Cymru’s Neath Port Talbot B-Lines Project- a 3-yr project, working with communities and partners to restore and create wildflower-rich habitat within the B-Lines network, supporting pollinators including nationally rare species such as the Long-horned bee and the Shrill carder bee.

The work of NPT B-Lines has been made possible by funding from the National Lottery Heritage Fund.
