The Birds & the Bees: How To Get Involved in Citizen Science through Your Garden
Thursday, May 6 from 1:00 p.m. - 2:00 p.m.
Online via Zoom or by Phone
A garden can be home to birds, animals, pollinators, and many other living things. Learn how citizen science practices and principles can help you observe and document garden life—for your own records and to contribute data to a project. Jessica Ross, research specialist at University of Wisconsin-Madison, will discuss ways to get involved monitoring bumble bees, birds, butterflies, invasive species, and seasonal changes.
