Our next events
Balch Hill Pollinator Inventory
Wednesday July 19 and Wednesday August 16, 2-4 pm
Summit of Balch Hill, Hanover, NH MAP
Leader: Sara Zahendra, Vermont Center for Ecostudies
Sara will be helping complete a pollinator survey throughout the summer months to evaluate the meadow habitat on Balch Hill, and act as a baseline for future habitat improvements and pollinator-friendly plantings. The public is welcome to come learn more about the surveying process and help collect and identify insects. This will include using nets to catch insects, specifically bees, learning how to identify them with Sara, and then releasing them back into them.
