Garden Earth Explorers– Become a Citizen Scientist –

August 24, 2019, 10:15 am - 11:00 am

|Recurring Event (See all)

One event on August 24, 2019 at 10:15 am

Free

Every Thursday and Saturday at 10:15 am the Garden Explorers program meets in the Alice H. Richards Children’s Garden. This event is free and open to children of all ages.

For this special week, we are joining forces with UGA Extension and partners throughout the state to become citizen scientists. We will be collecting data for the Great Georgia Pollinator Census.  Families will learn what an insect is, make a fun bee craft, learn to identify different pollinators and then head into the garden to make observations. The data collected will be sent to UGA Extension to get a snapshot of insect activity throughout the state. You can’t make it? Don’t worry check out https://ggapc.org/ to see how you can participate at home.
