Thank you for your timely article on bee friendly fall plants. I have been planting sequentially blooming CA native plants for 30 years on my property. A patch of California buckwheat which usually attracts large numbers of honey bees (and other insects) has drawn the fewest visitors of any year I have experienced. The CA aster have buds, and CA fuchsia is beginning its bloom. But where are the bees?  
I notice on your website that you have a volunteer program, but the link is broken. If you are accepting volunteers, I am interested in receiving information.

I've noticed low bee numbers during the past two summers, likely related to drought.  
Thank you for your interest in volunteering. You'll find a link to our volunteer application here:
