One Tam is excited to announce the return of the Tamalpais Bee Lab! 

In collaboration with Dr. Gretchen LeBuhn and her lab at San Francisco State University, One Tam is continuing our efforts to monitor and understand more about Mt. Tamalpais’ wild bees and other pollinators. Building on the initial 2017 survey of Mt. Tam’s wild bees, we’ll be expanding monitoring to the Golden Gate National Recreation Area, Point Reyes National Seashore, Marin Municipal Water District, California State Parks, and Marin County Parks from 2021-2025.   

The initial survey yielded remarkable results, recording 32 genera and 122 bee species from 20 sites managed by Marin Water and California State Parks! You can hear more about these results from Dr. LeBuhn and Dr. Lisette Arellano, One Tam’s Community Science Program Manager.   

Community science volunteers play a critical role in this study by pinning, sorting, and labeling specimens collected from the field. Join us to connect with the One Tam community of staff and volunteers, learn more about Mt. Tam’s wild pollinators, and gain skills in scientific collections management and insect identification! 

To comply with COVID-19 safety protocols, these events are limited to 12 pre-registered individuals on a  first-come-first-serve basis. More details on protocols and logistics will be sent to registered attendees the week of the event.
