      EVENT DETAILS
      Pollinator Survey at Habitat

      Join this incredible opportunity to connect with Nature, and to help the conservation of our urban wildlife habitats. We observe and collect information about pollinators (and more generally arthropods). We then feed that info to different global databases that are tracking species richness, population abundance, and phenophases.  Collecting such data is an important scientific effort that helps better understand the collapse of insect populations, that is being been observed throughout the world. That kind of data is critical to understand the implications on avian populations, other fauna at large, and on our own species (e.g., food security). A better understanding will lead to better societal actions and policies. We will also develop together a virtual guide to the insects and wildlife of Habitat. Age: Adults (16+) & Seniors. Rendezvous: In the parking lot of the sanctuary, close by the education center.ⓘ Details & Registration: This is an RSVP event.
