Bee Hunt!

Please join us in this scientific study to understand the impact of climate change and other factors on plant-pollinator interactions, geographic distributions, and seasonal abundances. You can either choose to inventory bees and all other natural history at a site, or you can design an experiment that compares pollinators at two different patches of flowers.

The easiest way to participate in Bee Hunt is to inventory the natural history at a site. Simply choose a time when pollinators are likely to be out (a sunny day with some flowers present) and follow THESE steps.
