Event description

Description

Join us this summer at our bee monitoring club devoted to monitoring native bees as citizen scientists at High Park. The club meets weekly for 1.5 hours at the High Park Nature Centre with host Susan Frye, a PhD candidate from the University of Toronto. The club aims to explore native bees in the vicinity at the genus level as they emerge from nests. We will also identify plants in the vicinity that are used by native bees and wasps for food and nest building. A major component of this club will use the Audio Bee Cabinet located at the High Park Nature Centre to encompass a sensory experience with stem nesting bees and wasps, and to record weekly activity at the cabinet. As citizen scientists, we can gather and record observations to compile them into a data base that will contribute to our growing understanding of native bees. This club is suitable for people ages 12 +. For more information, please contact Susan at s.frye@mail.utoronto.ca.

Attendees, please meet at the west varanda at the High Park Nature Centre.
