The Midwest Bumble Bee Survey is looking for people willing to walk among flower patches, collecting data, and photographing bumble bees. These data are crucial to informing conservation and recovery plans for threatened and endangered bumble bee species. This workshop will train you to ID common bumble bees, safely handle and photograph bees, and record data. We’ll also answer all your burning questions about bumble bees. Weather permitting, we will get outside to find some bees on flowers. After this workshop, you can adopt a grid cell, choose your survey location, and help document bumble bee populations this summer! Surveys will begin in mid-June, so this is a great way to make sure you are ready.
