[ARCHIVED] Buzzing with Beecology: Citizen Science for Pollinator Conservation

Event announcement for Beecology event at French Park Pollinator Garden wiith text and graphics

Join Dr. Robert Egear, the creator of the Beecology Project, on Wed., July 12, 2023, from 10 AM to 1 PM at the French Park Pollinator Garden for an opportunity to become a citizen reporter using the free Beecology App. 

Wild pollinators have declined in abundance, diversity, and geographic distribution at an alarming rate over recent years. These declines pose a significant threat to ecosystem health and biodiversity, yet we currently lack critical ecological information needed to develop effective conservation and restoration strategies for threatened species. The 'Beecology Project' aims to fill this gap by recruiting citizen scientists from across the region to digitally collect and submit ecological data on native pollinator species using our freely available smartphone and web apps. 

The event is limited to 20 participants. Sign up here. A $20 donation is suggested. Sponsored by the Egremont Agricultural Commission, Landscape Interactions, and Indian Line Farm. For questions, contact or 413.429.5978. For more information about the Beecology Project, go here.
