The second garden event is “Connect with Nature, through Native Bees”, led by Megan Halcroft (PhD), a conservationist and science communicator specialising in Australian native bees. Through her seminars and workshops, Megan shares her passion for bees and their importance in driving ecosystem biodiversity. “During this presentation, I will talk about the importance of pollinators, which native bees you might find in the Lithgow area and where they live,” said Megan.
