Series Description: Come see what all the buzz is about and BEEcome a Pollinator Warrior in this four-part series. Get an inside look at pollinators and their vital role in keeping our environment healthy and our food supply secure. Learn why pollinators are important, what is needed to protect them and graduate with the tools you need to make a big difference in protecting and revitalizing our pollinators and their homes. You’ll take home items after every session to put your Pollinator Warrior Powers to good use!
Session 4: How to be a Pollinator Scientist – There are not enough scientists to do all the work that is needed to study and protect our pollinators. That’s where you come in! In this session, you’ll learn how to participate in Citizen Science programs that allow you to help collect data for science. We will review some of these programs and teach you how to use one of the most popular, iNaturalist. You’ll get an overview of how to simply take accurate photos in your own backyard – or anywhere in nature – so experts can ID what you find. Whether you have fancy photography equipment or just a smartphone you can have a big impact! Following session four we will have a graduation luncheon for all who have completed the four sessions. Each participant will leave with a book and a certificate naming them as a certified Pollinator Warrior!
Individual session registration is available for those unable to attend all four sessions, but you’ll get the most benefit by participating in the series since the classes build on each other. Participants who complete the series of four sessions will receive a special book and certificate at a graduation luncheon, along with bragging rights to your new powers!
