Atlas Survey Blitz
These events are targeted survey dates for all Bumble Bee Atlas participants—including those in Nebraska, Minnesota, and the Pacific Northwest (Oregon, Idaho, and Washington)—to work collaboratively! To participate, visit your grid cell on one (or all!) of the listed dates, conduct a survey, and submit your data within 7 days of the Blitz. We will be sharing results from each of the Blitz weekends for each state. Participation is optional, but encouraged.
Join project leaders in the field to practice the survey protocol, netting and identifying bees, and ask any questions you have! Field Days are open to new and returning volunteers. These events are all outdoor and will be limited to 8 people/date, please register to reserve your space.
