Citizen Science: Observing Pollinators/ The Great Sunflower Project at Springton Manor Farm

Saturday, August 27, 2022 -
10:00am to 11:30am
Location: 
Springton Manor Farm

Join the Chester County Library, Chester County Parks and Preservation and the Friends of Springton Manor Farm in the SciStarter Citizen Science program "Oberving Pollinators" in the Pollinator Garden at Springton Manor Farm County Park.

Learn about pollinators and why they are so impotant. Use the Citizen Science kits, made available by the library to make hands on observations and identify pollinators and the plants they are frequenting. The Great Sunflower Project is the largest citizen science project focused on pollinators, with over 100,000 participants and counting. Volunteers are asked to find any plant (like a sunflower), observe it for five or more minutes, record all pollinators (like bees or butterflies) that visit, and report the data online. This project helps identify where pollinators are declining and determine how we can help improve their habitats. We need pollinators. They help produce more than one-third of our food!
