Introduction to bumble bee identification - Webinars

bumble bee pollinating flower

In addition to being fuzzy and cute, bumble bees are important pollinators in Minnesota. Their large size and relative ease of identification make them an excellent entry point for those wanting to know more about native bees in Minnesota.

In this webinar, participants will learn how to identify bumble bees to the species level and how to use their 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. Counted as 3 education hours.

Detailed information on joining the webinar will be sent via email one week before the event.

There are three dates and times so please view the registration section and register for the workshop that fits into your schedule best.
