“What’s in bloom?”

Have you enjoyed contributing to scientific research by transcribing plant specimen labels in Notes from Nature?  If you like this, you may also be interested in the UVA Mountain Lake Biological Station’s “What’s in bloom” volunteer, citizen science wildflower bloom monitoring project.  You can find out details about it here:  http://mlbs.org/whatsinbloom .  This is another great opportunity to contribute to science, interact with researchers, and enjoy nature.

    This sounds like the kind of activity which would attract lots of people. Does anyone know if there are similar activities elsewhere in the country? Perhaps even a central list of them? I guess that collecting lots of data on what’s blooming, when and where, is something botanists would find very interesting!
