Big Butterfly Count and Wildlife Mapping, Tuesday 2nd August, Rodden Meadow, 11.00 – 12.30

Join this fun and interactive session delivered by Jo Morris, Frome Town Council’s Resilience Officer for the last chance to take part in this year’s Big Butterfly Count and learn how to support our own Frome Community Wildlife Mapping project.

The session will cover:

  • Why wildlife needs our help with focus on pollinating insects
  • Actions we can take to help wildlife in our gardens, balconies, and communal green spaces
  • Citizen science – surveying/looking for wildlife using Seek and iNaturalist
  • Connecting with nature through nature art, mindfulness, and play

Feel free to bring a picnic to enjoy after.

Come Dine With Bee, Thursday 18th August, The Old Showfield (near Frome Medical Centre), 11.30-13.00

Join our Resilience Officer Jo Morris for a pollinator themed picnic. Some fun research is required before this one as we would like you to include some food that wouldn’t exist without pollinating insects! Jo will chat to you about the importance of pollinating insects and there will be a chance to engage in some fun wildlife themed activities.
