    Postcards, 12, postmarked

    Collect them all! Twelve postcards, lovingly mailed from beautiful(*) places all over the western U.S. (and possibly Canada.) Taken together, you will have a personal record of the road team's progress in pursuit of the Western Bumblebee. (*) Standards of beauty may vary, and may refer to locations near the mailbox, rather than the mailbox itself. We will mail, at most, one postcard from Seattle.

    Stop on the Road

    Thank you for your support! In fact, you are so awesome, and so obviously committed to pollinator conservation, that we would like to thank you in person. Of course, just because we would like to doesn't mean that we will -- our schedule gets pretty strict in places -- but we will call or email ahead of our closest approach to wherever you are, and if we can stop by and say hello, we will.

    Bee on a Rock

    Award-winning miniatures artist Marike Reimer was in the field with a group of UW entomology students when they discovered a new local population of Western Bumblebees. She created this special entry in her "Bug on a Rock" series to mark the occasion. We are proud to announce the rare opportunity to acquire a Marike Reimer original. (It's also a really cool bee on a rock.)

    36" canvas print

    This is a unique print: the one and only 36" stretched canvas print of the ur-photo, the one that started it all. This is the photograph that confirmed the reappearance of the Western Bumblebee, that was picked up by the Seattle Times, and that started the Western Bumblebee Project. It's a really big print. I love the result, but I'm never making another one. Includes shipping.
