A big part of the project early on involves building the materials we'll need to survey for native bees. Here, Collin (left) and Camille (a CU undergraduate) glue PVC together to make holders for elevated bee bowls. We place these in the field to capture small bees. Photos of the finished product are on the way!
I am a researcher at CU-Boulder leading a USDA funded project looking at native bee diversity in agricultural landscapes of eastern Colorado. Please enjoy your visit and contact me if you have any questions.
