Welcome to Spring beauty and the bees!

Spring beauty and the bees is a project that aims to document changing pollinator populations through the efforts of volunteer citizen scientists. By monitoring the insects that visit Claytonia virginica and Claytonia caroliniana (also known as spring beauty) throughout the east coast, we can determine how pollinator communities change depending on the year, the location, and the season.  This information will help us better understand the biology of native pollinators, as well as help us determine the best way to evaluate their value for native plant reproduction.

You can help us! If you are interested in spending an hour or two this spring observing pollinators on spring beauty, please email  spring.beauty.pollinators@gmail.com. Volunteer responsibilities will be minimal, and all observations will occur during beautiful spring weather!
