The practice-based Operation Pollinator workshop will be held by Syngenta and Everris on 24 May at Naas Golf Club, Kerdiffstown, County Kildare.

Training will be provided by STRI ecologists, and topics will include how to locate, establish or improve wildflower areas, ways to help clubs to maximise publicity opportunities and attracting new players and how clubs can get involved.

Syngenta portfolio manager Rod Burke said:

"Operation Pollinator has already created a real buzz among greenkeepers, club managers and players alike.

"Reversing the plight of the bumblebee and other pollinating insects will help to prove that golf courses can be managed in harmony with the environment and provide valuable wildlife habitats."
