"It would be helpful to know what environmental factors may affect native bee populations.”

The project welcomes two new partners. Discover Life, an online shared data site, will enable participants to submit photos of the bees and their sunflowers to create online digital vouchers and contribute to an online collection of images as well as the project’s database. A partnership with the National Phenology Network will help the researchers determine whether climate and environmental changes lead to disruptions of plant pollination.

Everyone who signs up for the project will receive a free kit containing data forms, a guide to gardening for pollinators, educational materials and a packet of sunflower seeds. The kits can be obtained from the Great Sunflower Project Web site, www.greatsunflower.org, or by calling (415) 405-2409.
