Bee Identification

Bee Identification & Curation How-To

During this first year of monitoring with the OBP, our goals are to train interested leaders for monitoring groups on specimen collection and curation, develop regional reference collections, and begin generating baseline data. As time progresses, and we have a greater knowledge base to rely on, our long-term goal will shift focus to developing a more rigorous monitoring design capable of detecting low-level population changes or trends throughout the state.
