Research Technician

Thea Evans is the lab technician for the Minnesota Bee Atlas and The Art and Science of Nesting Bees. Fascinated by native plants and charismatic microfauna since first spotting a green bee on some wildflowers she planted in her yard, Thea worked for many years designing and planting native plant gardens before completing a B.S. in Restoration Ecology and Natural Resource Management at the University of Minnesota. She also works as a naturalist for the Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board, and you may see her introducing toddlers to snakes or riding the Pollinator Bike in a park near you.
