A hands-on opportunity in citizen science.
Join entomologist Joel Gardner from the University of Manitoba to find out how bumble bee populations are doing at FortWhyte. You will learn how to safely handle these fuzzy pollinators and observe them before releasing them back into the wild.
Joel will be leading three surveys — you are welcome to attend one or all three.
Who is it for?
- Suggested for ages 12+, including adults.
- Although risk of a sting is low with proper care, this activity is not recommended for those with known bee allergies.
Included with general admission to FortWhyte Alive.
