Build for Bees competition

The Devon Local Nature Partnership is currently running the ‘Build for Bees’ competition this summer as part of the ‘Get Devon Buzzing’ campaign. There are some amazing prizes to be won, including an exclusive tour of Goren farm, memberships to the Devon Wildlife trust, Buglife and Bumblebee conservation trust, wildflower seed packs and more!

Who can enter?

The competition is a fantastic activity for community groups, families and schools, and aims to encourage people to be creative and active outdoors and take part in some practical conservation by building bug hotels to provide crucial habitats for pollinators, which are in serious decline.

Be inspired...

There are already some amazing bug hotels across Devon to see and get some inspiration, including builds at Cricklepit Mill garden (Devon Wildlife Trust), Bowling Green Marsh (RSPB) and Thorveton recreation ground.

Please help to promote the competition via social media using #BuildForBees and by displaying some posters and flyers, which are available to download from the website, or they can be sent upon request.

 Visit the Natural Devon website www.naturaldevon.org.uk for more information about the competition. If you have any questions or would like to request any posters and flyers, contact Max.Anderson@devon.gov.uk
