New Jersey Swarm Report: Help Supply Real-World Swarm Data

 

The Northwest New Jersey Beekeepers Association is asking New Jersey Beekeepers to contribute to a statewide data capture of swarm reports.  All one has to do is spend two minutes at a website to tell where, when, and two facts about the swarm.

 

URL to Report a SWARM: https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/swarm 

 

Why do this?

Year after year data will be a valuable tool for beekeepers in swarm prevention practices.

 

NWNJBA Swarm REPORT

The information will be aggregated and shared back to the NJBA and the state apiarist.  You can also follow along as the data will be updated routinely to watch the swarming patterns in the state emerge.  There will be a REPORT page with information summary and a map plot of reports via the NWNJBA website: http://nwba.njbeekeepers.org 

 

For more information or questions about this initiative visit the NWJBA website or send an e-mail to nwnjba@live.com.

Science Hobbyists Needed for a National Study

 

Are you a science hobbyist?

We need your help with a new National Science Foundation sponsored research study that will investigate the characteristics and educational experiences of people who are active in science hobbies. More and more people are engaging in science hobbies; schools and science centers would like to know more about the characteristics of science hobbyists and how these organizations might better support hobbyists’ networking and education.

What will happen if you take part in the study?

The information gained from this research can help science educators and researchers understand how to better teach science in schools and museums, and how to design better community-based science programs. Participation in this study is voluntary. Information you provide will be anonymous. If you complete the survey, you may elect to enter a drawing for a $100 Target gift card.
