Beecology: A Community Scientist Helping Pollinators

Presented by Dr. Robert Gegear, UMASS Dartmouth and Founder of the Beecology Project

Dr. Robert Gegear will update participants on the decline of wild pollinators and the importance of collecting critical ecological information that is needed to develop effective conservation and restoration strategies for threatened pollinator species. The Beecology project was developed to recruit citizen scientists from across the region to digitally collect and submit ecological data on native pollinators. You will learn and practice data collection using the smartphone and web apps developed through this project. Participants will have the chance to use online visualization tools to collect data important for improving the quality of native pollinator habitats.

This project is supported in part by a New Hampshire Humanities Community Project Grant.
