  • 5/30-6/1 Boulder – Intro to Colorado’s Wild Bees: Their Taxonomy and Ecology.  In order to gain an appreciation for them, we will explore 2-3 sites varying in elevation along the St. Vrain Creek from Lyons to Longmont. These sites were heavily impacted by flooding in 2013, and Dr. Carper has led research efforts to identify areas of important nesting resources for native bees, and study how management of those resources impacts bee communities. We will visit observation nest blocks for cavity-nesting bees, photograph bees in the wild, catch and release specimens for observation, and explore wild bee habitat and needs. We will also tour restoration efforts along the creek and discuss the implications of both nesting and floral resource management on native bees. Boulder County Nature Association
