I apologize in advance for posting a New York Times article that’s behind a paywall but it seems perfectly aligned with our interests and offers participation! Hopefully you’ve not yet reached your monthly limit on free NYT articles. The article touches on a national citizen scientist opportunity to be part of an ongoing bee census. If you can’t get to the article, you can find out about the project here:

I got an automatic response back. They have so much interest that there is a backlog in responding to emails. That's a good problem to have. Good thing they have at least four months before any work can be done.

This is really cool, esp. that noobs like me don't have to identify the bug.

Honestly I had walked around thinking carpenter bees were bumblebees until fairly recently.  :facepalm:

Go to the ant, you sluggard; consider its ways and be wise! It has no commander, no overseer or ruler, yet it stores its provisions in summer and gathers its food at harvest. -Proverbs 6: 6-8
