Isn't the Xerces Society based in Portland? I bet they would know what to do with them, they may even have some kind of program that could use them with school kids, etc. Wow, they have a really cool website! <www.xerces.org>. Their are some really cool sections in the Polinator Conservation Program section on bees, for those interested. Audubon would also be a good choice, or if you have a Natural History Museum in Portland, they might be interested. A local community college proffessor could probably use a few nets too. I know when I was in college taking a field ecology course, we had to sign up for the nets, and some of them didn't make it back. Brett Johnson Green Man Gardens firstname.lastname@example.org
