Nature Ramblers– Great Georgia Pollinator Census –
August 22, 2019, 9:00 am - 10:30 amFree
The popular Botanical Garden Nature Ramblers will dive into the Great Georgia Pollinator Census during the fourth week in August. On Thursday, August 22, the Ramblers will focus on learning to identify different types of insect pollinators, such as butterflies, moths, bumble bees, honey bees, carpenter bees, wasps, and flies. On Friday, August 23, 9 – 11 a.m, Ramblers will meet again at the Visitor Center Fountain and head out into the Garden to begin the census. Each Rambler will select a plant and observe pollinator activity for at least 15 minutes, recording basic data such as weather conditions and common name of the plant. Participants can stay for as long or short as they want. Everyone is welcome, whether you are a beginner or long-time Rambler. Insect and plant experts will be on hand to help with identification and data collection.
