Pollinator Week Project Wingspan Volunteer Certification – Virtual Event
June 21 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm
Want to save pollinators during Pollinator Week? It’s more important than ever! June 19-25 is the time to learn how YOU can make a difference! Here’s one event with a lot of impact:
Volunteer to scout native wildflowers and collect native wildflower seeds at a local prairie with Project Wingspan. Illinois has close to 30 native wildflower seed collection teams throughout the state. These teams collect from a list of 35 native wildflower species. The seeds are then cleaned at an IDNR facility and distributed to local Illinois pollinator habitat projects. You can become a certified volunteer on your own by visiting https://www.pollinator.org/wingspan/seed-collection or by attending the virtual training during Pollinator Week. No registration needed, just enter the zoom room on Wednesday night, June 21st. Here is the zoom information, below.
If you would like more information about any of these Pollinator Week items or activities, you can email Eleanor Schumacher, Illinois State Coordinator for Project Wingspan at firstname.lastname@example.org
