The Great Sunflower Project

Visit “The Great Sunflower Project” to learn about how you can participate as a citizen scientist in real research about the health of pollinators, from hummingbirds and bats to bees and flies. These tireless animals are key to our world’s food supply! Plus, find out about our other citizen science kits that you can check out from participating local libraries, and about ways to celebrate Citizen Science Month in April 2020! We’ll have activities for all ages, and while supplies last, we’ll be distributing seeds for the Lemon Queen sunflower, a tall, branching variety that is particularly attractive to bees!
