There is a pressing need to increase tick surveillance in Missouri. New human pathogens transmitted by ticks are being discovered, and the state has a diverse and abundant tick community that is poorly understood. Using citizen science, we can develop information on patterns in tick-borne health issues statewide and simultaneously convert the public from passive recipients of information to active participants in scientific study. This project began in April 2021 and will continue through September 2022. To date, over 15,000 ticks have been submitted and all but one county has submitted at least one tick.

Enjoy some sunshine, learn about your backyard bees, and join a fantastic community of bee enthusiasts! We invite you to help us track bees throughout the St. Louis region by hanging out in your own backyard on days when the weather is warm (>60°F) and partly to mostly sunny between 10 a.m. - 3 p.m. The goals of this project are to understand how landscape features and land management decisions affect bee diversity and behavior.
We need your help to figure it out!
