Venture into the open meadows of the Sierra Nevada and learn firsthand about the plight of the humble bumblebee. Alongside expert biologists, we’ll journey deep into Sequoia National Park to spot, study, and help conduct research on these small but mighty pollinators. The first step to protecting them is understanding them, so we’ll be embarking on an immersive bee-seeking expedition to help identify specimens, track populations, and explore the native wildlife of this spectacular 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 transportation to and from Silver City Mountain Resort are not included in the trip cost. This trip is limited to 12 travelers.
