Come celebrate citizen science day by learning more about bumble bees and how citizen scientists can contribute valuable data in Minnesota. In addition to being fuzzy and cute, bumble bees are important pollinators. Their large size and relative ease of identification makes them an excellent entry point for those wanting to know more about native bees in Minnesota. In this workshop at Westwood Hills Nature Center, participants will learn how to identify bumble bees to the species level and how to use their identification skills to participate in the Minnesota Bee Atlas. The Bee Atlas will use observations from citizen scientists to better understand the distribution of native bees in Minnesota. The $20 course fee includes all course materials.
