Monitoring Pollinators in Wetlands: Opportunities for Citizen Scientists

Many Wisconsin volunteers participate in monitoring projects to track the distribution and abundance of pollinators. These projects collect data crucial to conservation research and land management, but wetlands are underrepresented in the monitoring efforts. Join citizen-based monitoring coordinator Eva Lewandowski to learn more about how data collected by citizen scientists help scientists and land managers. Eva will also discuss opportunities for volunteers to monitor bees and butterflies in wetlands and other habitats across the state.

Eva Lewandowski is the Citizen-based Monitoring Coordinator at the Wisconsin DNR, and she serves on the board of the Citizen Science Association. She earned a PhD in Conservation Biology from the University of Minnesota.
