Bee-Insect2-PNGAfter a crash course in “bee photography,” you’ll work in teams to conduct photo surveys. Your photographs will help biologists track bee populations around the nation through BeeSpotter, a web-based citizen science program hosted by the University of Illinois. Throughout the event, you will learn about bee biology and how you can support wild bee populations.

We need your help to make this a successful survey! Get outside this summer and join us for this science-in-action citizen science research effort to save the wild bees!

St. Louis BeeBlitz is presented in partnership with the St. Louis Bee Brigade, a citizen science BioBlitz collaboration of Webster University, The Academy of Science of St. Louis, the Saint Louis Zoo, Saint Louis University, BeeSpotter of the University of Illinois, and Forest Park Forever.
