The next Wild Pollinator Count is nearly here! You can count pollinators on your favourite flowers during the week of 15-22 November 2015.
This year, we’re also partnering with other regional organisations to provide face-to-face opportunities for people to learn more about pollinators in their local region and join in a pollinator count.
In the Albury region, we’ve teamed up with the Slopes2Summit partnership to run some great events during the count week, including a macro-photography workshop and pollinator ID sessions in the Albury Botanic Gardens. Stay tuned to our website for more information!
In the Sydney region, a number of Pollinator Week events are also organised to coincide with the Wild Pollinator Count, including open gardens and pollinator ID workshops. You can find out details of these on the Bees Business Facebook page.
It’s wonderful to see how many people are excited about the next count. We have a ‘Run your own Count’ kit arriving on the website soon, which will provide you with some downloadable resources, should you fancy organising your own local count event.
Or you can do the count on your own, anywhere you want, during the count week.
Have a look at the new Photo Gallery to get inspired, and stay tuned for several new resources. If you use bowerbird.org.au, we have created a Wild Pollinator Count ’project’, which is another option for you to upload and share photos of your observations.
And, if you’re on Twitter, don’t forget to include the #Ozpollinators hashtag in your tweets to share sightings, information and ID tips all year round.
Happy wild pollinator spotting!
