It takes place on Wednesday, July 25, 10am-noon.

Morgan Bowers, Walsall Council senior countryside ranger, said: “Bees have become a hot topic in recent years with the media starting to recognise how important pollinators are to the British countryside.

“If you fancy a chance to learn about these amazing creatures why not come along to one of our Summer Bee Walks?

“Many people don’t realise that there are 25 different types of bumblebee in the UK, and many of those are quite easy to recognise.

“Walkers will be able to see some of our fantastic bees up close and will be able to recognise the bees when in their own gardens when they get home.

“As well as discovering more about the wildlife on their doorsteps people will also enjoy exploring our countryside sites.”

People interested in taking part in the Heathland Bees walk from 10am-12 noon should meet at the canal bridge at the end of Wood Lane in Pelsall.

The walk is free but the events are weather dependent and will be cancelled if it rains.
