Bumble Bee Nest Quest is a public participation science project tracking bumble bee nesting and characterizing nesting habitat. Anyone is eligible to gather data on bumble bee needs to inform conservation actions. Volunteer scientists will adopt a designated survey plot within a Twin Cities park. We are currently accepting volunteers for Lake Elmo Regional Park in Washington County and Lebanon Hills Regional Park in Dakota County. We are also working with Three Rivers Parks volunteers in Crow Hassan and Hyland Park. Nest Quests can be done alone or with a group of friends or family members. We offer workshops and training sessions to equip you with the skills necessary to survey your plot for bumble bee nests and gather habitat data. You will visit your survey plot once every other week for one hour searching for bumble bee nests.
