SCB-TO had a fantastic turn out yesterday at our pinning event. Close to 20 volunteers from the University of Toronto, York University, Rouge Park and the North American Native Plant Society swiftly pinned over 400 specimens in just a few hours.
Over the next several months SCB-TO board member, and resident native bee expert, Genevieve Rowe will identify the delicate specimens. Together with specimens which have already been processed, this data will improve our understanding of pollinator populations in Rouge Park, soon to be Canada’s first urban national park.
We’ve still got a bit left to do before our Pollintaor Project is complete, so we’ll be holding one final pinning session in March. If you’re interested in getting involved email us to join our volunteer list.
