Pollinator projects empower corporate conservation teams to address global biodiversity issues through site-based action. Providing native pollinators with host and nectar plants is an important part of such conservation efforts, but the work doesn’t stop once milkweed and bee balm have taken root. From there, participants must regularly monitor the habitat. Tying these monitoring efforts to larger citizen science initiatives provides employees and community members with an opportunity to contribute data to large-scale efforts that track species distribution and movement.
In this webinar, a natural resource specialist from Maricopa County Parks and Recreation will discuss the importance of citizen science and other monitoring efforts, reflect on her experience with citizen science efforts in Arizona, and provide resources on starting and monitoring a pollinator project anywhere.
