Species Spotlight: Bumblebees

Bumblebees and other native pollinators are in dire straits so it is important that we collect population data that can be used to help conserve these important species. BeeSpotter is a collaboration between citizen scientists and the professional science community through a web-based portal at the University of Illinois. To learn more about this program and how you could get involved as a BeeSpotter, join local naturalist Barbara Williams for this fascinating educational program.

This session is open to anyone interested in learning about native pollinators; it is required for all those planning to volunteer as official FPWC BeeSpotters in 2018. Training will be held at Forest Preserve Headquarters.
