Citizen Science Project Seeking Volunteers

Calling all gardeners interested in insects and conservation!

The Gardiner Lab at The Ohio State University Department of Entomology is seeking Citizen Scientists to aid in the study of insect pollination this summer!  Our goal is to measure the amount of pollination provided to gardens in rural, suburban and urban landscapes.  Measuring pollination is one way to gauge the health of our bee community.  All that is required is a small garden space where you will be able to grow four sweet pepper plants and the willingness to follow an experimental protocol this summer!
