Empire State Native Pollinator Workshop

Date(s) - Saturday, Jun 30, 2018
10:00 am - 4:00 pm

Beaver Meadow Audubon Center


An Empire State Native Pollinator Workshop will take place from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, June 30 at Beaver Meadow Audubon Center, 1610 Welch Rd., North Java.

It is limited to 20 people; register here (choose the  ESNPS Western NY Workshop).

It will cover basic pollinator biology, project survey methods, and how to submit data–all you need to know to participate in the project. The New York Natural Heritage Program (NYNHP) is looking for people to make insect observations and/or do scientific surveys to help the Empire State Native Pollinator Survey.

The goal of the survey is to determine the conservation status of a wide array of native insect pollinators in nonagricultural habitats. It will focus efforts on important at-risk pollinator species that are native to the Northeastern US. By doing surveys and sending in your data, you will allow them to gather much more information on these important organisms and will help them cover a much larger portion of the state.

This will be a great chance to expand your knowledge about native bees, flies, beetles, and butterflies/moths and spend time outdoors observing them with friends
and family.
