Join us on August 13th for a discussion and Q&A on how, using the Earth Challenge app, citizen scientists can help monitor and conserve bee populations around the world.

Bee populations around the world are declining, with many species of bees becoming endangered at rates higher than ever before. Human and bee survival is intertwined —
without bees, we risk doing significant damage to ourselves and our world's ecosystems.

The webinar will be 60 minutes and hosted over Zoom. By registering and joining the webinar, you’ll be able to ask questions during the Q&A. If you can’t connect over Zoom, we’ll also be streaming the event over Facebook.

What is citizen science?

Citizen science is the practice of public participation and collaboration in scientific research to increase scientific knowledge. Through citizen science, people share and contribute to data monitoring and collection programs.

The Earth Challenge 2020 app empowers people around the world to monitor and help mitigate threats to environmental and human health in their communities.

Our panelists include:

--Kathleen Rogers, Earth Day Network
--Anne Bowser, Wilson Center
--Landon Van Dyke, Department of State
--Sam Droege, U.S. Geological Survey
--Moderator: J. Marcelle Lashley-Kaborè, Girls with Knowledge, Inc.
