Citizen Scientists Count Pollinators

Our gardens were buzzing with excitement as AP biology students partnered with Lower School students to participate in the Great Georgia Pollinator Census, a citizen science initiative from the University of Georgia.  Citizen scientists all around Georgia counted pollinators in their yards, gardens, and campuses to help UGA establish a database and understanding of pollinator populations across the state.  The Upper School students helped the Lower School students identify different species of bees, wasps, and butterflies on our campus, while the Lower School students helped to count and spot for pollinators as they moved through the sample area.
