  • May 2017 Club Meeting - BEE COUNTED: A national citizen science project
    From 6:30 pm to 8:30 pm on May 2, 2017

    Location: Pinney Library, 204 Cottage Grove Rd, Madison, WI 53716, USA


    Presented by: Rich Morris, Lead Drone, BroodMinder

    Rich is an engineer, a product designer, and an avid beekeeper. After keeping bees for 8 years, he became increasingly curious to know what was going in in his hives when he wasn’t there. BroodMinder was born out of that curiosity. Partnering with a team of like-minded professionals, Rich has used his extensive design experience to create beekeeper-friendly wireless beehive monitors in a quest to better understand and sustain our precious bees. BEE COUNTED is an effort to collect nationwide hive data at over 10,000 locations into a public domain database to be shared with bee lovers everywhere.
