Wednesday Explorers Club ~ Project Budburst

Buds are swelling, opening, flowering... providing the first pollen of the year for bees.

One way to get to know the signs of spring in your area is to "adopt" a tree in your back yard. Observe it over the next few weeks and jot notes about what's happening - or draw pictures of what the buds look like.

Some things you'll want to pay attention to include:

  • What sort of flowers does it have? 
  • When do they open?
  • What do the flowers look like close-up?
  • How long do they last?
  • When do the leaves burst out?

Become  a "citizen scientist" for Project BudBurst and share data with others.
