The Wisconsin Bumble Bee Brigade allows volunteers from the public and professionals to report observations of bumble bees seen in Wisconsin. The information you provide will be used by the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources and its partners to study, manage, and conserve Wisconsin's bumble bees. Data on rare species will be used to supplement the Wisconsin Natural Heritage Inventory database. Personal information collected on this form will be used to process your request, and may be used to contact you if DNR staff require additional information or for project updates; it may also be made available to requesters under Wisconsin's Open Records law [ss. 19.31-19.39, Wis. Stats]. Reports of federally threatened or endangered species, including date, location, and your name, may be shared with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. The photos and observation data that you submit, generalized to the township level, will be displayed on the Wisconsin Bumble Bee Brigade website, under the display name of your choice or as anonymous.
