iNaturalist Training: Rusty Patched Bumble Bee
I thought this might interest OCVN folks. iNaturalist is an excellent way to both learn AND educate others. The training will focus on how to get started in iNaturalist and participate in our new initiative, the Ohio Bee Atlas.
Friday, May 19, 6:30 PM - 8:30 PM
INATURALIST TRAINING: RUSTY PATCHED BUMBLE BEE Bee populations across the country are facing survival threats, and one local species—the rusty patched bumble bee—has recently been listed as federally endangered. Summit Metro Parks and partner agencies hope to jumpstart public input into a new statewide citizen science project called the Ohio Bee Atlas. The project will use the iNaturalist platform to document the distribution and identity of bumble bees. During this training, Summit Metro Parks Biologist Marlo Perdicas will explain iNaturalist and how to get started using the site—specifically for the Ohio Bee Atlas project. Happy Days Lodge: 500 W.
