Siskiyou Bumble Bees


Photo by Lee Finney


Instructor: Robbin Thorp, Ph.D.
Dates: Tuesday-Wednesday, May 23 -24, 2017
Location: SFI
Tuition: $150


They’re essential to native plant reproductive success, but did you know that bumble bees also pollinate many North American greenhouse and field food crops including tomatoes, peppers, alfalfa, berries and fruit trees? Several Western species are in decline due to disease and habitat loss. The Western Bumble Bee (B. occidentalis) was a candidate for the Endangered Species list but certain regional populations are resurging. Franklin’s Bumble Bee (B. franklini) was last seen in 2006.

This workshop will provide opportunities to learn identification of various Bombus species native to our bioregion – in labs, lectures and by observing and collecting in the field. We will study morphological, behavioral and seasonal differences among the major species, learning bumble bee terminology including eusocial, sonication and corbiculate, along the way.
