“Idaho’s Department of Fish & Game (IDFG) is improving habitat on the Boundary-Smith Creek Wildlife Management Area for many kinds of wildlife, including bumblebees. Near Bonner’s Ferry, this area happens to be at the center of where two imperiled bumblebees are found in North America. Once quite common, they are now very rare. But restoring an abundance and wide variety of wildflowers for bumblebee foraging can help their populations rebound.

Kristina Boyd coordinates volunteer citizen science for the Idaho Department of Fish & Game within the Idaho Panhandle Bees to Bears Climate Adaptation Project.

Michael Lucid is a biologist for Idaho Fish and Game’s Wildlife Diversity Program. He leads a regional biodiversity monitoring program, the Multi-species Baseline Initiative, and implements the Bees to Bears Climate Adaptation Project. Michael is a 2017 Wilburforce Fellow in Conservation Science.
