There is a citizen scientist project to map bumble bees. The project is out of Canada, but is mapping the entire North American continent. All you need to do it to sign up, snap pictures of bumble bees, and upload them to Bumble Bee Watch using their online form. There are guides to help you identify your bumble bee, but they also have a team of experts who will verify your sightings. This is a perfect opportunity to hone your photography skill while helping bumble bees. Their online site offers tips for taking pictures.
