2. Capture and Release Pollinator Sampling Field Day - shifts available on 8/9, and 8/25 | Lakeville

Thursday, July 7th from 10:00am to Thursday, August 25th, 2022 12:00pm


Join Great River Greening, U of M Extension Bee Lab, and the Xerces Society for a hands-on pollinator capture and release sampling field day. Participants will gain more experience with capture and release practices, as well as pollinator identification. 

Sampling field days will take place on multiple days at both Ritter Farm in Lakeville and Spring Lake Regional Park in Prior Lake with morning and afternoon sessions available. With multiple sampling efforts throughout the summer, we will gain a better understanding of how pollinator populations are responding to our restoration efforts.

Additional field days are scheduled for:
- Thursday, July 7 
- Tuesday, August 9
- Thursday, August 25
