Longer days, shorter nights and warmer weather herald the arrival of spring, a time when the natural world comes alive with a vibrant display colour, rich aromas and familiar sounds. Though many of us are currently confined within the realms of our gardens or local area, now is an excellent opportunity to get more familiar with our garden wildlife and identify ways to provide a home for nature.

The Giving Nature a Home in Cardiff project – in partnership with RSPB Cymru, Cardiff Council Community Ranger Service and Buglife Cymru – is pleased to announce the launch of three, free-to-use training workshops. These workshops are funded by the National Lottery Community Fund and cover the following topics: 

  • Pollinator identification
  • Seasonal gardening tasks for wildlife
  • Creating, maintaining and enhancing habitat for pollinators.

You can complete these workshops from the comfort of your own home, by following the links below. The links will take you to an online presentation which you can complete at your own pace. We hope that you all enjoy these workshops and that they inspire you to give nature a home. 



Pollinator identification

Have you ever struggled to identify a pollinating insect? Would you like to know the differences between bees and flies, or a honeybee and a solitary bee? This workshop will provide you with the skills necessary to recognise and identify the key groups of pollinating insect in the UK. It will also explore the surprising diversity of pollinating insect groups and explain why pollinating insects are so important to us and the natural world.


Seasonal gardening tasks for wildlife

Are you interested in wildlife gardening but in need of some inspiration? Or perhaps you are unsure of the best times to undertake different wildlife gardening tasks? This workshop will provide you with ideas of how to help wildlife in your garden or local green space and suggest the best time of year to complete these different tasks.


Creating, maintaining and enhancing habitat for pollinators

Do you own or manage a green space? Would you like to support our declining pollinating insects? If so, this is the workshop for you. This workshop will help you identify opportunities to create, maintain and enhance habitats for pollinators. Public parks, school grounds, business parks, allotments, orchards, community and private gardens, churchyards, cemeteries, urban woodland and even roadside verges all provide opportunities to benefit pollinating insects.
