Do take some time to poke around this site. Check out “Projects” on the menu and sign up to participate in “BeeSpotter – a partnership between citizen-scientists and the professional science community designed to educate the public about pollinators by engaging them in a data collection effort of importance to the nation. It is a web-based portal at the University of Illinois for learning about honey bees and bumble bees and for contributing data to a nationwide effort to baseline information on population status of these insects.

There’s lots more here to explore – so many activities, so little time.  :)
