I am the pollinator ecologist at SUNY-ESF's Restoration Science Center. My primary focus is on native bees and other wild pollinators, though I am familiar with most insect taxa. I have performed research on bumblebee declines at the University of New Hampshire under Dr. Sandra Rehan and my M.S. at SUNY-ESF examined effects of wetland restoration and management on native bees and syrphid flies. I am also an avid birdwatcher.
I use writing and photography to perform outreach and education about pollinators, birds, native gardening, and the natural world to wide audiences, such as through webinars, workshops, lectures, guided walks, popular articles, non-personal interpretation (e.g., brochures, booklets), and social media. Please feel free to reach out with any interest or questions you may have.
My website (a work in progress): https://mollymjacobson.wixsite.com/buggyfornature
More of my insect photos can be found on BugGuide, where I am a contributing editor: https://bugguide.net/bgimage/user/25568
I am also on eBird, Xeno-Canto, BumblebeeWatch (expert identifier), and LinkedIn.
I am from southern New Hampshire but for the time being I am based in central New York.
At this time, I'm not prepared to migrate the 5000+ photos I have on BugGuide over here, so I will likely use this account for non-insect sightings and select notable insect records. Please forgive my poor mushroom ID skills!
I am the main compiler for the New Hampshire bee species checklist.
As a good rule of thumb for anyone on here, please don't agree with my IDs unless you can verify them yourself! I occasionally glance at a photo too quickly and might make an error, and if so please let me know.
