Join Katie Lamke, Bumble Bee Conservation Specialist with the Xerces Society, for this event in the field! The Nebraska Bumble Bee Atlas is a new statewide community science project aimed at tracking and conserving native bumble bees. This project is a collaborative effort between the Xerces Society and the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, with funding from the Nebraska Environmental Trust. Whether you already participate in the Atlas or want to know more about the project, this is a chance for you to gain hands-on experience. Together, we will spend a couple hours netting, photographing, and identifying the bumble bees found at Mormon Island. There will be extra vials available, but please bring your own net!
