The Institute of Urban Ecology (IUE) at Douglas College has undertaken the User Network for Insect Biology in the Urban Garden (UNIBUG) citizen science research project. The overall goal of UNIBUG is to engage community volunteers in learning about the ecology of urban gardens, with a particular focus on beneficial garden insects. Our project looks at attracting predatory and parasitic insects into urban gardens as well as studying pollinators and their habitat through identifying, counting bees and monitoring bee houses.
The UNIBUG Project welcomes volunteers of all ages and backgrounds from throughout Metro Vancouver. Please contact us with questions about the project or if you are interested in becoming a UNIBUG volunteer.
