Pollinator Citizen Science

Pollinator Citizen Science

This unique program engages youth in a summer program to learn about wild pollinators and collect essential data on the abundance and diversity of bees, wasps, and butterflies in Vancouver’s green spaces. Youth receive in-field lesson time on pollinator identification and data collection methods at Strathcona Community Gardens, followed by data collection events over the spring and summer blooms. Data is analyzed by a professional biologist and final reports are presented to our site partners, who use the findings to make informed choices about habitat management, plan restoration projects, and support pollinator diversity in Metro Vancouver parks. 

For any other questions about the program, please contact Marika van Reeuwyk at marika@eya.ca
