The Alaska Bee Atlas is a collection program to attain data on the biodiversity of bees in Alaska. While the diversity of bumble bees is reasonably known, the diversity and distribution of nonsocial, or solitary bees, in Alaska is very poorly known. Bee observations will allow us to identify regions, habitats, and species that are of conservation concern and more effectively target specific monitoring actions. We supply researchers and community scientists with kits to survey for bees across the state. If you are interested in participating, please reference the resources section for methods and materials and the sampling grid map for geographic locations.
