Get the Bug


The University of Georgia Cooperative Extension is conducting its annual Great Georgia Pollinator Census on August 19 and 20, and volunteers of all ages are invited to help.

To participate in the citizen science project, simply watch a flowering plant in your garden or a park for 15 minutes and count and record the number of pollinators – bees, butterflies, wasps, flies and other insects – that land on it.

Participants are welcome to observe and count more than once during the two-day period. An insect identification guide and a page to upload counts are available at
