The Great Georgia Pollinator Census

Citizen Science at Work
August 23-24, 2019
Coordinated by University of Georgia Extension


On August 23rd and 24th, 2019, Georgians of all ages from all over the state will join efforts to document our pollinators. Won't you join us?

The Great Georgia Pollinator Census is an historical initiative where Georgians will record the numbers and types of pollinators that populate our state during late summer.  You do not have to be an entomologist to be part of this important project!   The census was designed for individuals, families, garden clubs, school groups, friends – ALL Georgians to participate. Download the Insect Counting Guide (below) for counting details.  Also, on-line training will be available from this website so stay tuned.  Check out the “Events” page for pollinator events near you!

The Victorian Community Garden Pollinator Space

Gardeners in Savannah created this lovely pollinator habitat.  Having this space close to their food plants means an increased harvest!
