A honey bee (Apis mellifera
) visiting a mountain mint (Pycnanthemum muticum
) blossom. The Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture is conducting a citizen scientist native bee monitoring project that will ultimately allow us ( The Pa Dept of Ag) to make reccommendations to gardeners as to what kind of plants they should plant in a garden to make it pollinator friendly. The project is in part funded by Haagen--Dazs. For more information please visit: www.helpthehoneybees.com
