Community Science

December 8

Virtual Event

Project Overview

 Once the snow flies, the University of Minnesota Bugs Below Zero team would like you to join us in a community science project that expands our understanding of winter active aquatic insects. Participants identify and submit information and photographs of aquatic insects on the snow, often near stream banks. Your help can grow our understanding of how the unique Minnesota climate reveals valuable insights about interactions between weather, water, insects, and food webs for researchers across the globe. Visit the Bugs Below Zero project on the Ancedata app or website ( or download the form below to participate.
