The Beeline Project
Calling all Christ Church Beeliners!
Making a Beeline to Conservation is a project that started on a cold November day a few years ago. The children walked around the neighbourhood and planted 5000 daffodil and bluebell bulbs to provide early nectar for the bees. Lots of children then wanted to get involved in conservation and became known as the Beeliners. In Spring this year lots of children joined the Beeliners club and planted seeds and made some lovely mosaics for the knot garden. This is your chance to get involved again or maybe for the first time.
The summer holiday is a great time to do things such as the big butterfly count or perhaps grow some flowers and I would like to invite you keep in touch and let us know what you are doing to help wildlife. Many exciting things are happening in the garden and all around you and we’d love to hear about them.
You may have a fabulous photo you would like to share with us or perhaps a little story about what have done to help the birds and insects that depend on you. If so, then send them to: firstname.lastname@example.org We will be checking the emails every week and will try to publish as much as we can to our web page. Don’t worry if you can’t get onto the web or you don’t have a digital camera, just write on ordinary paper! Or you could draw a picture of some of the things you have seen. Bring it into school when you come back in September and we will scan it and publish your work then.
I am very lucky to have lots of birds and insects in my garden and here are some pictures we have taken recently.
