Redwood National Park is home to some of the tallest and oldest living things on the planet. Some of the trees here have existed for 160 million years, but the forest’s formidable flora would never have reached such great heights without the humble pollinators that tie the ecosystem together. Alongside expert biologists, venture through the towering redwoods to learn about the plight of the bumblebee and help conduct research on the wild, bristly pollinator. The first step to protecting these critical creatures is understanding them, so we’re embarking on a bee-seeking expedition to help identify specimens, track populations, and explore the native wildlife of this extraordinary landscape. This trip is offered by Atlas Obscura. Once you've reserved your spot, our team will be in touch to help you prepare for the trip. Please note that flights and transfers to and from Redwood National Park are not included in the trip cost. This trip is limited to 12 travelers.
