29-30 augusti lanseras kommande spännande aktiviteter kring projektet Pollinerande insekter i Västerbotten
The LONA project is the largest national project organized by the Swedish Environmental Protection Agency (Naturvårdsverket) for different kinds of environmental restoration projects. Since 2017, researchers and students have been involved in a LONA project to explore the situation of the wild pollinating insects in the Västerbotten county in Northern Sweden. All LONA projects are always presented on the last weekend of August every year in different parts of Sweden. In former years, the UmU team has organized guided insect hiking tours, lectures and workshops. Due to the current corona situation, digital online presentations will instead be launched to inform about current and future activities on this field.
See the following presentations organised within the LONA Days 2020 (in Swedish):
