Project BudBurst

Project BudBurst is a national network of citizen scientists monitoring plants as the seasons change. It was created in 2007 as a community engagement effort to bring about a better understanding of how plants respond to changes in climate locally, regionally, and nationally. Instructional materials are available to support implementation in a variety of educational settings.
