Be a Bee Spotter for Pollinator Week
Date: July 3, 2021 - 9:00am to 11:00am
In honor of #PollinatorWeek, we'd like to tell you about the upcoming BeeBlitz at the Pollinatarium, located at 606 W. Windsor Rd., Urbana!
FROM BEESPOTTER.ORG AT THE UNIVERSITY OF ILLINOIS:
Join us at the Pollinatarium on July 3, from 9 to 11 a.m. to celebrate another National Pollinator Week. The University of Illinois Pollinatarium is the first free-standing science center in the nation devoted to flowering plants and their pollinators. It's surrounded by prairie, so it's the perfect place to spot some bees! Please note: the Pollinatarium building is closed until August, so this will be an outdoor event.
We will venture out into the fields surrounding the Pollinatarium and photograph honey & bumble bees, then upload the photos to BeeSpotter. We encourage you to bring your camera or smartphone, though we will have cameras available for those who need one.
This event is free and open to the public. Feel free to come for the whole time or stop in for only part of the event. We'd love to have you join us, even if only for 20-30 minutes!
