Help San Francisco State University study the distribution of pollinators in your own backyard. Sign up to be a part of the Great Sunflower Project. Create an account online and you will receive a free packet of wild, native sunflowers (Helianthus annuus) to plant and attract pollinators. Then use the provided datasheet to record the number of pollinators you see. You don’t need to know anything about bees. You just need a willingness to participate and contribute to the project. During your home project you can discuss observations with others online and learn about pollinators. You also don’t need to be located in San Francisco. The Great Sunflower Project is a national project. Sign up today and plant your seeds in your own garden, a community garden or better yet, a school garden!
