citizen science

In order to understand the state of pollinators in urban cities, including their health, available resources, contribution of nutrient rich food, and best ways to manage pollinators in urban gardens, it is first important to have a large-scale understanding of the number and types of pollinators that are in the city.  Scientists often have a hard time collecting large-scale data, especially on private land.  However, by monitoring your own garden, you are contributing to a network of citizen scientists, who can gather a lot more information together than scientists can on their own.  While it is very hard for even the most skilled taxonomist to identify bee species, the DPP will use broad categories of bees to understand the diversity within the city. The following pages will give you all the information you need to monitor your own garden. Thank you for your efforts in contributing valuable knowledge to the health of pollinators!
