Free Yellowknife Pollinator Steward Training Workshop

Hi everyone,

Pollinator Partnership Canada is hosting a free 2 day in-person Pollinator Steward Training workshop on Saturday, June 1st and Sunday, June 2nd at the Prince of Wales Northern Heritage Centre!

Register at https://form.jotform.com/241216761584256

Saturday, June 1st - we will cover some of the basics including who the pollinators are, why they are important, and factors that are impacting their populations. We will also cover bee biology and how to identify different bee groups, as well as habitat creation that supports pollinators.

Sunday, June 2nd - will feature a behind the scenes tour at the museum where we will get to see some historical plant and pollinator specimens. We will have a guest presentation by GNWT Environment and Climate Change covering the status of bees in the north. We will then talk about outreach and community science. And if the weather is nice, we will finish off the workshop by going outside and observing bees around the museum.

If you have any questions about the workshop you can email me at ac@pollinator.org.

Hi everyone!

Just wanted to introduce myself and our project. My name is Anthony Colangelo and I am the Communications and Engagement Manager at Pollinator Partnership Canada, a non-profit organization dedicated to the health of bees and pollinators.

This iNaturalist community science project is a part of our Habitat Stewardship Program grant we received which will run this summer and next. Our project goal is to learn more about the flowers bumble bees and other pollinators are visiting for pollen and nectar in the north. By understanding what flowers they are visiting we can help with future gardening and conservation efforts around Yellowknife!

Thank you so much for joining and contributing to our observations, your help is greatly appreciated. I'm really looking forward to seeing all the bumble bee and pollinator pictures over the rest of the summer! :)
