Follow the flight of the bee in Letterkenny

LETTERKENNY Tidy Towns’ ‘Flight of the Bee’ mural at the Jim McCormick Memorial urban garden has been completed.
It forms part of a collection of biodiversity inspired street art that has been developed around the town in recent months.
The educational images are centred around the theme of bees and pollination and form the ‘Flight of the Bee’ walking trail, an initiative that not only hopes to promote the important message of biodiversity but also act as a way to draw tourists into both the old and new town centres.
The trail is about 1km in length, starting at the Port Road, and takes approximately 30 minutes to walk. It will give visitors and locals alike the chance to follow Queen Bee on her journey and will hopefully encourage people to call into the coffee shops and eateries along the way.
The idea is for the images to attract young and old and get the message across that bees are vital  for the preservation of ecological balance and biodiversity in nature. They provide one of the most recognisable ecosystem services, i.e., pollination, which is what makes food production possible.
