The City of Pine Lake will serve as an official waystation during the first ever Georgia Great PollinatorCensus on Saturday, Aug. 24, 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., at Pine Lake Clubhouse, 300 Clubhouse Drive, Pine Lake.
The public is invited to be a part of the historical initiative as citizen scientists by helping record the numbers and types of pollinators that populate the state during late summer. The project, which is sponsored by the University of Georgia’s Extension Office, is open to Georgia residents of all ages. Participants do not have to be an entomologist to participate.
The Pine Lake Clubhouse will serve coffee and offer guided census counting of pollinators from 10 am. to noon. Visitors are invited to bring a picnic and stay for live music from 12 to 2 p.m. There will be kids’ crafts and an opportunity to meet bee and butterfly experts as well as master gardeners. Guests will have a chance to help create a “Pollinator Picnic“ collage on the city’s outdoor art wall.
The event is free and open to the public. For more information, visit www.pinelakega.net/PollPic.aspx or email PLArtwall@gmail.com
