The ASU Center for Biodiversity Outcomes, the School for the Future of Innovation in Society at ASU, ASU Library, and ASU Destination West invite the entire ASU community to participate in a citizen science project to help ASU scientists document flowering plants and pollinators on ASU’s Phoenix-area campuses.
Citizen Science Month offers thousands of opportunities for you to turn your curiosity into impact. There’s something for everyone, everywhere! Join a project or event from wherever you are to help scientists answer questions they cannot answer without you.
Nature's Notebook is a national, online program where amateur and professional naturalists regularly record observations of plants and animals to generate long-term data sets used for scientific discovery and decision-making.
Pollinator Projects include *Nectar Connectors* and *Flowers for Bats*
A diverse group of researchers and citizen scientists will investigate how a wide range of organisms respond to the change of seasons. They will share their insights into the natural world, reveal new technologies that make their discoveries possible and encourage audiences to join the adventure of science.
Includes special features about pollinators and the plants they love!

The ASU Seed Library is stocked with edible plant and herb seeds which are appropriate for Arizona growing conditions and seasons. At times, a limited amount of seeds from nonedible plants may be available, such as wildflowers. Seed donations are always welcome!
Learning resources include:
*a collection of hundreds of natural artifacts from both terrestrial and marine environments
*an array of visualization tools for studying natural phenomena
*a collection of biomimicry and natural history books including volumes on such topics as biomechanics, field guides and nature macrophotography.
