Our Department of Entomology needs your help sharing the collection. As part of the Bumble Bee Rapid Capture project they photographed over 44,000 bumble bee specimens in just 8 weeks. Now we need to transfer all the label information to searchable text.

Come transcribe bumble bee records with Dr. Sean Brady and a swarm of other bee geeks. How many can you help us transcribe?

Bee novices are welcome.

If you have a laptop, please bring it with you on the day of the event for your personal use in the transcription effort. For participants who do not have a laptop, the Museum will have a limited number available for use.

We're sorry, the deadline for registering for this event has passed.
