You can help! This class will cover some bee identification basics, how to use your phone to monitor bees, and where the most help is needed in monitoring and collecting data on them. There are many monitoring gaps across the state and even gaps in some neighborhoods in the Twin Cities, where it would be great to get more information about the bees that are there.

Elaine Evans is a University of Minnesota Extension Educator and Researcher working on pollinator education and research relating to bee conservation. Her work helps to monitor pollinators, improve the impact of pollinator habitat, raise awareness of pollinators and action steps for pollinator conservation, and connect pollinators to climate, water, and soil.
