Current Event: Volunteers Track Bees By Planting Sunflowers.
Thousands of volunteers are planting sunflowers in the Bay Area this spring. School classes, civic groups, gardeners, nature museums, and more. So far, there has been 25,000 sunflowers and 4,000 bees spotted. They are planting sunflowers because bees are losing their population. This is why volunteers are planting sunflowers in unpopulated bee areas.
