Bees - they sting don't they? No, not all. There are some eleven species of stingless bees that call Australia home - and live in the warmer climates of the country.



Entemologist, Dr Tim Heard has been keeping native bees for over 30 years, and will be conducting a workshop as part of the Peaks to Points Festival 2016 , on Friday 29th July, from 11 am to 1 pm at the Griffiith University Eco Centre, which is at the Nathan Campus and part of Toohey Forest. Click here for details about the Eco Centre location.

You will learn the basics of keeping these native stingless bees, at the workshop, and learning about opening and splitting a hive and other practical information about managing your own hive.



Cost to attend is $20 which includes morning tea. You will need to book - as booking is essential. Phone the EcoCentre on 3735 7992 or send an email to [email protected]. Event hosted by Sugarbag Bees .(Check when you book about parking - parking is $6)
