Bee Blitzes across Ohio during National Pollinator Week, June 16 - 24

Join Denise Ellsworth from the OSU Bee Lab along with fellow bee enthusiasts at one of these Bee Blitz events across Ohio during National Pollinator Week, June 16 - 24. We'll use nets and vials to catch (and then release) bees in the field and identify common Ohio species. Shorter events are free; longer events require registration and small fee (http://u.osu.edu/thebuzz/2018/06/11/bee-blitzes-across-ohio-during-national-pollinator-week-june-16-24/).

Nets, bee ID guides and vials provided to use in the field. Bring water, a snack or lunch in a day pack, and dress for the weather and ticks. If the weather looks threatening, call Denise to check for cancellations: (234) 249-4346. Questions? Contact Denise at ellsworth.2@osu.edu
