9th Annual BeeBlitz

Posted on: 6/9/2023 6:22 PM

Join BeeSpotter on Saturday, June 24, 2023 for the ninth annual BeeBlitz, to celebrate National Pollinator Week!

On Saturday, June 24th, all residents of Illinois, Missouri, Indiana, and Ohio are invited to canvas their backyards and neighborhoods for bees, snap some pics, and upload them to BeeSpotter. The name BeeBlitz is derived from a BioBlitz, an activity in which all of the biodiversity in a specific area is examined, to provide a snapshot in time of the flora and fauna present. BeeSpotter wants to know what species of honey & bumble bees are seen, and where they are, on the weekend of the 24th. We encourage veteran and aspiring bee spotters alike to venture out on a nature walk and participate in the blitz.
