Local Pupils are Buzzing to help ‘Trees for Bees’ planting
Local schools were invited to enter our ‘Trees for Bees’ art competition, producing colourful posters that would be used to make inspirational signs at each apple tree grove. Winning schools are now receiving their own ‘Trees for Bees’ as part of the scheme and learning more about the important role pollinators and trees have in protecting our planet.
FODC and Lough Erne Landscape Partnership were overwhelmed by the number and quality of entries from a wide spread of schools, with over 580 pupils entering from 23 schools across the council district. Ten winning entries were chosen to be made into signs and each pupil was presented with a ‘wild’ goody bag.
