Great Yellow Bumblebees are among the rarest of British bumblebees.
They are found predominantly in Scottish Islands on machair and other
flower-rich areas. During the Outer Hebrides Wildlife Festival, we are
celebrating the Great Yellow Bumblebee and other diverse species found
in our islands. In this creative workshop for Primary school age
children you will learn about these amazing bees through music, games
and art activities.
