The CCUWBee Pollinators Native Bee Collection includes photographs from abundance and diversity surveys on the UW Bothell/Cascadia College Campus. Images show bees of various species throughout several years of surveys and ongoing submissions. With the growing concern of the decline in bee pollinator populations, UW Bothell and Cascadia College made the joint decision to make the campus grounds more pollinator-friendly. The grounds team, with various educational and research projects, have planted and designed areas with attractive and native plants as resources for pollinators, and promoted nesting sites by letting some areas grow unencumbered by mowing techniques and maintenance. The CCUWBee research project creates opportunities for students to engage in citizen science research on bee species, make the data available to students and research bodies, and to engage the public and campus community on the value of conservation of bees and other pollinators.
