Last year, as part of the May 8 centennial of the founding of the Cooperative Extension Service in the United States, UC ANR Cooperative Extension (UCCE) invited Californians to take a walk or visit a park or garden and be citizen scientists. The goals were to crowd-source information on pollinators, water use, and food production and consumption and to give participants a shared experience of observing and reporting on the world around them.
