The Wisconsin Bumble Bee Brigade is a photography-based volunteer monitoring project that seeks to collect data on bumblebees in Wisconsin to assist the DNR in managing and conserving these important pollinators. Volunteers will be trained on bumblebee biology, identification, and protocols for collecting and submitting data.
This is one of over 20 Citizen-Based Monitoring (CBM) projects currently underway in Wisconsin.
