 about august jackson


My work involves increasing awareness around the diversity of native bees and establishing baseline population data to support conservation of insect pollinators in Pacific Northwest ecosystems. To that end, I provide specimen identification of bees, as well as flies in the family Syrphidae to the extent currently possible in Western North America. I offer thorough trainings in bee identification, both in the field and with the aid of a microscope. Additionally, I am able to provide site-specific inventory and monitoring and consult on survey methods, pollinator-focused restoration, and land management. Field and studio photography is available upon request.

Based in Springfield, Oregon
