Squash bee citizen science survey

As part of a USDA Organic Research and Extension Initiative funded grant on organic cucurbit (squash, melon, cucumber, gourds, etc.) management we recently conducted a citizen science survey to study bees in cucurbit flowers. Our goal was to better understand cucurbit pollination, in particular we were interested in the role of squash bees and the impact of farm management practices on them. You can watch a webinar on what the survey was like (Password: MG2018).
