Join Amy Mertl of Lesley University and Claire O’Neill of EarthWise Aware on Saturday as we work together to document our important urban pollinators. We will start with a brief talk about urban pollinators and a tutorial on how to use your smartphone or camera to document insects, suggest apps to use, and go over the basic insect families. Afterwards we will split into groups and walk through the cemetery to photograph as many pollinators as possible! Bring a smartphone or camera, water, and sunscreen. If you have a smartphone, we suggest downloading the iNaturalist app beforehand. Kids are welcome! Rain Date: June 23rd at 10 am.
