Conservation through Observation
The Common Acre encourages citizen scientists to engage in pollinator conservation by developing the ﬁrst ever ﬁeld guide to Bees of the Puget Sound Lowlands!
Easy to use, this fold-out guide organizes bees by genus and is color-coded based on where each bee species carries pollen - hind legs (in packets), hind legs (in hairs), or under abdomen (in hairs). Look for insects carrying pollen and follow the guide's clues like bee size, body-color, where they build nests, and when they are actively flying.
Sales of the field guide fund The Common Acre's continued pollinator conservation efforts.
About The Common Acre
The Common Acre is a 501c3 nonproﬁt headquartered in Seattle, WA, which forms restorative relationships between people and the land, through innovative projects rooted in ecology, community, and art. We believe in radically re-imagining public space to reconnect humans with nature. Our collaborative programs transform marginalized land into biodiverse pollinator habitat and community gardens, which in turn create space for inspirational cultural convenings. We also partner with scientists to improve our understanding of native pollinator ecosystems and feed that research back into both our restoration and artistic work.
