A citizen science project created by the University of Georgia where Georgians count the insects that land on a chosen pollinator plant for 15 minutes and put the insects into one of eight categories (carpenter bee, bumble bee, honey bee, small bee, wasp, fly, butterfly/moth, or other insect).  The project designed for any Georgian to participate and make a difference for pollinator conservation!

If you want a list of pollinator plants that will be blooming in August, Heather Alley and I have created what we think are the perfect plants for the Census.
