VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITY

Volunteer: Bumble Bee Community Science Program
Organization: Wildlife Preservation Canada & Bumble Bee Watch
Location: Pinery Provincial Park, Lake Huron, Ontario

Wildlife Preservation Canada is kicking off the 8th year of their Pinery Provincial Park Bumble Bee Community Science Program. The program runs from late June to about mid-September (depending on weather).

Help contribute valuable data for Pinery, which is the last place the endangered rusty-patched bumble bee was found in Canada and the last place the Endangered gypsy-cuckoo bumble bee was found in Ontario! So far, we have received 2,500+ observations from this project (~16% of records from Ontario) on Bumble Bee Watch.

We are have already hosted our volunteer workshop, which included background information on bumble bees and hands-on training for bumble bee surveying. However, if you’re interested in taking part of the Pinery program we invite you to attend a Bee Walk we are hosting at Pinery this summer. WPC is running two Bee Walks at Pinery during the summer for those who can’t attend the volunteer workshop but still want to get trained on surveying bumble bees and for anyone who wants to learn about bumble bees. The bee walks will be on: Friday July 15th 1-2:30pm and Saturday August 20th 1-2:30pm. To register for a bee walk please visit here: https://www.signupgenius.com/go/8050E44AFA728A1FD0-wpcbee

If you have any questions about the program or bee walks, please email us at pollinators@wildlifepreservation.ca
