Join the team! Our citizen scientists photograph bees every two weeks in a location of their choosing and upload their observations to iNautralist. Our research team then identifies the bees and plants in the photographs and uses those data to test hypotheses regarding bee diversity and behavior. We share our results and related information regularly through newsletters, seminars, and social media posts.
Every spring, we enroll and train new participants; if you are interested, REGISTER HERE or email email@example.com. You will receive 3-4 hours of training and join a wonderful community of bee enthusiasts!
Details and additional resources on photographing and identifying bees and helping pollinators can be found on the Shutterbee website.
