Bee a volunteer to help pollinators – in North Carolina

Are you concerned about the decline of pollinators but not sure how to help?

Do you like being outside?

Do you want to learn how to identify pollinators? Do you want to learn about native plants?

Then come volunteer at the JC Raulston Arboretum in Raleigh, NC, this spring and summer!

The folks at the Arboretum want to know what insects are pollinating their flowers. They installed two garden beds at the JC Raulston Arboretum (Raleigh, NC) and will be monitoring pollinators on Saturday mornings from May to August of 2017.

They are looking for volunteers of all ages and backgrounds to come perform pollinator observations on their flower beds. If you participate, you will learn how to identify different types of pollinators and plants native to North Carolina and the US. Your observations will be part of a larger database that will allow the staff to make decisions to help improve the health of our very important pollinators!
