How we sometimes are:
We need your help to make our science projects successful. The more people who participate, the more data we'll have to analyze.
Everyone in California is invited to participate. It's quick and easy. Go to beascientist.ucanr.edu, choose a project, and record your observations about conserving water, growing food or counting the numbers of pollinating bees, birds and butterflies in your neighborhood. You can share your observations on an interactive map and upload photos if you like.
This is a great opportunity to learn about California's natural resources and the role of agriculture in all our communities.
For 100 years UC Cooperative Extension has been turning science into solutions to build healthy communities. From creating new varieties of fruits and vegetables, fighting off invasive pest attacks, and helping school kids learn about healthy eating, UC's work benefits every Californian.

Nine members of the UCCE Sonoma office, and one reluctant 4-Her (the authors daughter pictured here), attended the Board of Supervisors meeting to accept the recognition.
The Bird Rescue Center made a presentation and brought along a couple of friends including the Great Horned Owl pictured here. It was raised by humans so it cannot hunt, but it is a really good ambassador for the Bird Rescue Center!
