Welcome and thank you for your interest!
We would like to sincerely thank you for your interest in the national native bee monitoring project. We are thrilled to see that so many people are interested in helping native bees. Our project is in its infancy, but we will be sending out more information about the project soon - it’s history, aims, and future, and how you can directly participate. Over the course of the winter we will occasionally send you some resources and information about native bees, in preparation for their emergence in the spring.
We wanted to send out this form to learn more about you, including some basic info about where you’re located and what your experience level is when it comes to native bees. We are also hoping to learn more about what motivates you to want to help native bees and what you might already be doing to support them.
Completion of this survey is voluntary. Your name and contact information will never be shared with anyone outside of this project, and any data collected will only be used for our own purposes, which includes summary reports to our funding agency (USDA). We are collecting this information solely so that we can gauge levels of participation in the project and guide how our project develops.
We estimate that this form should take ~5-10 minutes to complete.
