Thank you for your participation in the 2019 Penn State Sentinel Bee Nest Study! Our study has two objectives.  First, we aim to document patterns of wild bee diversity across Pennsylvania, with special emphasis on the comparison of different landscape types, such as cities, farms and forests. Second, we want people discover the wild bees of their neighborhoods, to learn their names, know their habitats, and become invested in their conservation.

Thank you for partnering with us!
