I just ran across these bee cards to help ID bees to genus. I hope they help as you learn more bees!
Thanks to everyone who was able to attend our spring update in Wooster late last month. I’m always amazed and humbled by our awesome cooperators and your continued dedication to the Phenology Garden Network.
A summary of our update can be found here, including the update PowerPoint and links to projects including the Ohio Bee Atlas, red maple study and English ivy study.
Be sure to let me know if you have a mature patch of English ivy (growing up a tree, mature leaves) to monitor this year for date of bloom.
