Topic: Minnesota's Native Bees
Featured speaker: Dr. Elaine Evans, MN Bee Atlas and MN Bumblebee Survey: I work on bee citizen science efforts including the Minnesota Bee Atlas and the Minnesota Bumble Bee Survey. I also work on education efforts to increase awareness of wild bee habitat needs and instill action to create effective pollinator habitat.
Dr. Elaine Evans works on questions related to wild bee diversity and bee conservation. She is currently assessing the status of Minnesota wild bee communities in comparison to historic records as well as monitoring population of the endangered rusty-patched bumble bee and examining habitat associations. She will share her work, information about our native bee population, as well as resources to help our pollinators.
