Educational presentations for Adults and children of all ages
My fun presentations are sure to inspire fertile minds to learn more about nature, science and the environment.
Bees are the most important pollinators and responsible for every three mouthfuls of the food we eat!
I highlight Australias native bees as well as European honeybees and have a detailed poster for people to view and get more familiar with our other important pollinators.
For these older children of ages 7 and up I also have a fun interactive bee game where the children are able to act out the roles within a bee hive. (Outdoor space needed)If the presentation is in Spring or summer I may be albe to open a hive (this one is great for distance video presentations) I can then explain the special process of working with the bees live.The future will belong to the nature-smart-those individuals, families, businesses, and political leaders who develop a deeper understanding of the transformative power of the natural world and who balance the virtual with the real. The more high-tech we become, the more nature we need- Richard Louv
