After a crash course in “bee photography,” we will 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. Click Find Out More to register!
