You Need to Be at Today’s Bee-a-thon

Bee part of the first-ever online town hall event dedicated to celebrating the  most underappreciated helpers in our gardens: bees.

The 2011 Bee-a-thon, hosted by Your Garden Show, is the kick-off to today’s Great Bee Count.

Stop by the Bee-a-thon between 9:00 a.m. and 9:00 p.m. Pacific time for the first-ever online webcast discussing how to protect our most valuable pollinators.

Throughout the day experts will discuss bee biology, changes in global bee populations, and what you can do to help. You can listen in throughout the day and ask questions in real time.

All of this buzz is in support of The Great Sunflower Project, a citizen science campaign that encourages gardeners to plant sunflowers, count the number of bees visiting them, and report the data online.

I’ve written about The Great Sunflower¬† Project many times over the last several years and was one of about 50,000 gardeners actively participating last year. My sunflowers are slow to bloom this year, but as soon as they do I’ll bee starting my observations.

Please join us for today’s special events!
