Bumble bee ID - Lowry Nature Center
Saturday, May 11
In addition to being fuzzy and cute, bumble bees are important pollinators in Minnesota. Their large size and relative ease of identification makes them an excellent entry point for those wanting to know more about native bees in Minnesota.
In this workshop at Lowry Nature Center, you will learn how to identify bumble bees to the species level and how to use your identification skills to participate in the Minnesota Bee Atlas. The Bee Atlas will use observations from citizen scientists to better understand the distribution of native bees in Minnesota.
The course cost is $25 and includes course manuals and supplies.
You must sign in to the Master Naturalist volunteer site to register for this event.
