The Geological Bumblebee Program is an outreach program led by Dr. Katherine Boggs from Mount Royal University in Calgary that combines geology and biology. The program consists of learning about bee species in local areas and taking action to help conserve them. During the first classroom visit in spring, students construct bumblebee boxes, and the program then takes students on a field trip to a local natural area to install the boxes. Geology of the local area is explored as well, and students investigate what geology tells us about the place we live and how it was formed. 

In fall, the programs takes students back to the park to collect the boxes and see if they were used by bumblebees.

 

Please contact Dr. Katherine Boggs if your class is interested in taking part in the program: kboggs@mtroyal.ca
