Calling all citizen scientists! Join us this week as we team up with Keep Indianapolis Beautiful and SustainIndy to engage in the important work of not only counting pollinators—birds, bees, butterflies and other beneficial insects—but educating Hoosiers on the need to plant native to help people and nature thrive!
Yesterday, Mayor Joe Hogsett signed a Monarch Pledge and urged all Indy residents to do their part to protect pollinator health.
Bee Public will host a FREE bee talk on Tuesday, July 19 followed by a pollinator count along the Monon Trail in Broad Ripple.
Check KIB's website and follow #KIBees to learn about upcoming Pollinator Count events, where you can pick up a counting kit (or save a tree and download one), engaging talks, and more about this city-wide goal to increase wild pollinators. This program will serve as a measuring tool to encourage a healthy and thriving Indianapolis and increase biodiversity in our neighborhoods and communities!
