Thanks to Kimber for forwarding me some great materials from the Illinois Department of Natural Resources. I’ll be posting it in bits and pieces throughout the week to come.
Next week we have a unique opportunity to take an electronic field trip. You do need to register in advance to join this focused learning on pollination and bees. Check out all the details:
Join PollinatorLIVE on Wednesday, September 29, 2010, for an electronic field trip to the Washington Youth Garden at the U.S. National Arboretum in Washington, D.C. for a series of webcasts exploring “Native Bees, Honey Bees, Gardening, and More.” PollinatorLIVE will be webcasting from 11 a.m. to 1:45 p.m. (EDT).
The website, for more information and to register, is Pollinator Live.
If you happen to be studying pollination or insects at any point this year, you will want to check out their site for other resources as well. They have a number of web seminars archived and available for instant viewing. They also have a place to register with their site to keep posted on upcoming events.
Your budding entomologist will definitely want to check it out.
