Friends of the Earth are taking part in The Great Canadian Bumble Bee Count.
As you know Bumble Bees are declining in numbers world wide according to the literature.
Volunteers are asked to upload sightings to:
www.Bumblebeewatch.org where your sightings will go into a data base.
Mike, our Chair thinks is a good idea to send an e-mail to all the gardeners on the e-mail list in case some gardeners want to participate in the count. I’ve already uploaded a sighting.
One of the required items is the Latitude and Longitude of the sighting. These readings can be obtained before filling out the form from Google Maps.
There is lots more information in the web site.
