Wild Apian Networks

The location of the project is the Galbreath Wildlands Preserve. It is a 3,670-acre nature reserve in Mendocino County, situated in the outer CA Coast Range 17 miles from the coast. Apis Arborea has begun a multiple-year-long program of beelining, surveying, and monitoring local apian networks. Bee trees will be located, monitored, and mapped. Log hives will be integrated for additional studies. Our vision is to create and collaborate with a multidisciplinary team.

The Preserve features woodland, forest and grassland communities that lie at the edge of coastal fog influence. Lands are in the upper Rancheria sub-basin of the Navarro Watershed and contain 1st - 5th order streams. The Preserve's forests are primarily second-growth coniferous forest and hardwood. Coastal California is heavily influenced by east-west distances to the cold California Current (dominated by it) and microclimates due to hills and coast ranges.
