So far the survey is going great! I started in March 2011 with the help of 4 wonderful volunteers. We made it through the heat of summer and are hanging on until it gets cold. If the bees are out, then we will be too! I've been able to identifly roughly 60 species of native bees within the research reserve and I project the number to increase as there are many bees I can't identify myself.
Stay tuned for more info! Until then, check out this interesting article:
