Bee Hunt!

Discover Life no longer manages Bee Hunt. We have turned our attention to moths, as these species are an ideal group to study for scientific, educational, and logistic reasons. If you would like to participate in our mothing project, please email dl@discoverlife.org. To learn more about Bee Hunt, please email Sam Droege.

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.
