This summer I'm working with Boulder County Parks and Open Space to document native bees along riparian areas impacted by the 2013 flood. One of our goals is to identify important floral resources for bees. Nearly three years post-flood, it's especially interesting to see how both the floral communities and the bees are returning to some of the most heavily impacted areas.
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.
