Amy Dolan - Endangered Species Conservation Biologist, Mountain States Bumble Bee Atlas - Xerces Society
Amy joined Xerces in June 2024 to coordinate the Mountain States Bumble Bee Atlas in Colorado, Nevada, Utah, and Wyoming. The goal of the project is to engage with agency partners and community scientists to gather data on bumble bee distribution and habitat needs across the region. Amy has a bachelor's degree in biology from Wisconsin Lutheran College and a master’s degree in entomology from Montana State University. Her masters project was “The Bumble Bees of Montana.” Much of Amy’s career has been spent in education—as a middle and high school science teacher, outdoor educator, and youth crew leader. She is excited to explore the diverse landscapes of the mountain states while connecting with new people and sharing her love of bumble bees.

Jul 29
10:00 AM - 2:00 PM PT
Chickadee Trailhead, Winthrop, WA 98862
Winthrop, WA

Want to connect with other bumble bee enthusiasts and get some hands-on experience conducting bumble bee surveys? Join us for a field day! Anyone with an interest in native bees and a desire to help them in a hands-on way is encouraged to attend—no prior experience needed! We'll go over how to use your insect net and how to collect data according to project methods.

Meet at Chickadee Trailhead at 10 AM PT. This National Forest trailhead is located ~9 miles (~17 minute drive) west of Winthrop. The trailhead has a restroom and does not require a parking permit. After meeting at the trailhead we will drive 3.7 miles up Thompson Rd. (NF-4410) to our field site. Thompson Rd. is a 2 wheel drive gravel road. If you arrive late and don't find the group at Chickadee Trailhead, continue up Thompson Rd. to the field site (near 48.4228, -120.2704).

While we will stay relatively close to the road throughout the day, we recommend sturdy, closed toed shoes for walking in vegetation and on uneven surfaces. Participants are also encouraged to bring water, snacks, and a lunch.
