The survey will run from June 2013 to October 2013; you can complete the survey as many weeks asyou like. Data will be compiled and the results posted on Mother Nature’s Backyard blog.Instructions – The eight California native garden plants included in the 2013 survey are pictured at:http://www.slideshare.net/cvadheim/pollinator-plants-id-sheet . You may survey as many of the 8 as you wish.Choose one plant per species to survey – all your observations will be based on a single plant of the species chosen.Write the name and number of the plant in the recording box below. Sit/stand quietly for 2-5 minutes, or until thepollinators return. Then observe the plant for 1 minute. Make a rough count of the numbers of bees, wasps,butterflies, flies and other insects that visit the flowers on your plant for one minute. You can use the blank spacesto tick off the insects as you see them. Then record your observations by circling the correct number on the formbelow. Scan your results (or type them up) and e-mail them to: mothernaturesbackyard10@gmail.com .
