Closed for now but check back…it says September 2011


The School of Ants project is a citizen-scientist driven study of the
ants that live in urban areas, particularly around homes and schools.  
Collection kits are available to anyone interested in participating.  
Teachers, students, parents, kids, junior-scientists, senior citizens
and enthusiasts of all stripes are involved in collecting ants in
schoolyards and backyards using a standardized protocol so that we can
make detailed maps of the wildlife that lives just outside our
doorsteps.  The maps that we create with these data are telling us quite a
lot about native and introduced ants in cities, not just here in North
Carolina, but across the United States and, as this project grows, about
the ants of the world! 



We are working with scientists, educators, kids, adults and
enthusiasts of all stripes to collect ants in schoolyards, around
workplaces and in everyone’s backyard.  It’s easy! Simply request a
sampling kit, send us back your ants, and we’ll notify you when your
samples have been identified and can be viewed on our maps.
