What We Do

Current Research & Community Science Schedule

Week of June 25 - July 1

Welcome to the Research and Community Science weekly schedule! We hope you’re enjoying the new calendar view to keep track of all the research and community science programs happening each week during the busy summer field season. From invertebrates to vertebrates, our repetoire of summer programming is sure to offer something for everyone. Coming soon: snake research and small mammal monitoring!

Program Highlights of the Week: Bumblebees & Fireflies!!
Bumblebees are underappreciated pollinators in the invertebrate world and are responsible for far more pollination of native plants and vegetation than most people realize. Join us for a walk through Riverside Park on Friday evening with special guest researchers from Bumblebee Watch to identify some of the important bumblebees in our green spaces.P8310046 Small

Additionally, on Thursday evening, the magical world of fireflies waits to be explored! In collaboration with Milwaukee Public Museum, we present our Firefly Monitoring Kickoff Celebration. Special guests from Milwaukee Public Museum will help teach participants how to monitor fireflies in their own backyard and provide equipment to do so.
