Before you adopt a grid cell, please make sure that you have registered for the project on Bumble Bee Watch
Step 1: Make Your Choice
Based on the results from 2018 we changed our prioritization for grid cells. Use the map below to find a grid cell of interest. Bright green cells are our highest priority and yellow cells are of medium priority for 2019. How transparent a cell is represents how many volunteers have signed up to collect data. When that number gets to 5, the cell becomes completely clear, essentially becoming unavailable. Blank cells were not included in our selection process (we still welcome incidental sightings in those locations, but they have not been selected for formal surveys). You can scroll in and out and change the layers as needed, see this page for guidance. As you scroll in closer, each cell will populate with a grid cell number - the state code followed by a number. Record the grid cell number of the cell you'd like to adopt and enter it in the form below the map (Step 2).
Step 2: Adopt your grid cell by filling out the form below.
If you are on a mobile device or otherwise having difficulty, you can find the entire form here: https://arcg.is/0yzrrv.
Step 3: Encourage others to adopt their grid cell today!
Step 4: Receive confirmation
Thank you! Within 2-3 days you will receive an email from us confirming the grid cell that you have adopted. If you do not hear from us, or have questions, please feel free to contact us.
