Learn about the plants at the People for Pollinators meadow and the pollinators that are attracted to this habitat. Tom Gumbart and Robin Wilkerson will guide participants around the meadow and the immediate surrounding area to observe the various species of plants and wildlife. An informational tent will be set up with reference guides and resources.
Bring your binoculars to zoom in closer to insects, birds and other wildlife of interest. Bring your camera to record your observations and then upload the information to the meadow’s citizen scientist site at iNaturalist.org. Other citizen scientist sites will be discussed as well.
Free. All are welcome.
