Community Science: Pollinator Workshop

Saturday, June 23, 2018

MMWD and San Francisco State University have begun studying the bees of Mt. Tamalpais. This is the first time this part of Marin has ever been surveyed for pollinators. The volunteer event involves sorting through the insects that were collected in traps on the mountain. We will separate bees from other insects and debris and then attach the bees to small pins by piercing or gluing them to the pins. Labels are then affixed. These prepared specimens are sent off to entomologists for further study. Meet at MMWD office in Corte Madera. Ages 13 and up. RSVP encouraged as space is limited. Opportunity to help until 2:00.
