Special impact: making a bee hotel

NLvoorelkaar

Are you aware of the distinction between honey bees and wild bees? Honey bees reside in hives tended by beekeepers and produce honey. On the other hand, wild bees inhabit natural habitats and play a crucial role in pollinating plants and flowers, aiding in the growth of vegetables, fruits, and other edible crops. Despite there being 358 species of wild bees in the Netherlands, they are facing challenges... but fortunately, there's something we can do to help! Would you like to contribute by creating a Bee Hotel or Bee Bed & Breakfast in your garden for these vital pollinators? Sign up, and we'll guide you through the process of easily constructing your own bee B&B. This challenge is also a wonderful activity to enjoy with kids!

Afternoon at the beach & making an impact

NLvoorelkaar

Maplife beach using an app and contribute to the preservation of our coastlines 🌊 In recent years, Dutch beaches have experienced increasing crowding. Unfortunately, this surge in beachgoers has left little space for nature and biodiversity along the coast. The Green Beach project aims to address this issue. You can map a section of beach using a special app. By gathering data through the app, Het Groene Strand can assess the biodiversity of the beach and work towards enhancing this unique natural habitat in the Netherlands. You're guaranteed a delightful afternoon, with the sea, sand, and a positive impact (provided the weather cooperates!). Plus, you'll learn something new. Have you ever heard of knotweed? Or spotted a hermit crab? With Het Groene Strand's new search map and app, you can discover the various plants and animals that inhabit the beach. Click 'I'm in' to get started! Tip: Share this challenge with friends, family, or colleagues for added enjoyment and doubled impact!
