Great Bee Count

Some of you may have participated in the Great Backyard Bird Count. Well, I have a new project for you!!

Visit The Great Sunflower Project for more information on recording the bees in your area. They will send you free sunflower seeds of a particular variety (yes, it matters to them). Then you plant, watch, record and enter online just like with the birds.

Very easy! We're trying it for the first time this year. Some things to learn will be telling the difference between wasps and bees, identifying the different types of bees, all about pollen, all about bee hives and bee habits. This could be very interesting!

If you are participating, let me know. It'll be fun to see everyone's data.
