The Shutterbee Project, with Webster University’s Nicole Miller-Struttmann
In her presentation, Nicole Miller-Struttmann will be talking about her work with Shutterbee, a citizen science program that tracks bee diversity in gardens through photography. Volunteers photograph the bees in their backyard every 2 weeks and share their results to a public application, iNaturalist. Miller-Struttman’s research team identifies the bees and plants they are visiting to test how urbanization and gardening affect bee diversity and behavior. To date, they have over 200 participants and 20,000 bee observations from around the St. Louis Area.
