Citizen Scientist : Observing PollinatorsLearn how to identify and count bees and other pollinators visiting flowering plants in your area with the SciStarter Observing Pollinators kit.
Pollinators are critical to the world’s agricultural food supply. In recent years their populations have suffered severe declines, especially among honey bee colonies. By gathering observations of bees, butterflies, and other pollinators, you can help scientists understand pollinator health and keep our wildlife communities vibrant.
