2nd Annual Bee Survey
June 5 • 8:00 am - 5:00 pm• FREE
Walama Restoration Project and Beyond Toxics are hosting the 2nd annual survey of native bees at Whilamut Natural Area. Join us for a day of observing our pollinators and contributing to the Oregon Bee Atlas, organized by the Oregon Bee Project. Learn more about the Oregon Bee Atlas here: https://www.oregonbeeproject.org/bee-atlas/
All ages are welcome, no experience necessary, but we especially want to urge photographers to join us so we can upload images of our bees to the iNaturalist app.
We will be meeting along Pre’s Trail, north of the Knickerbocker bridge (“Walama Restoration Project Site” in Google Maps). Please note this is walk/bike access only.
We will provide bug nets, identification guides, and naturalists to assist.
You can learn more about the statewide effort to catalogue bees here:
iNaturalist is a fabulous way to connect with nature and explore and share observations of flora and fauna around the world. All you have to do is snap an image and experts will do their best to identify it for you!
