Project Budburst

While driving to work (ugh) yesterday I heard an interesting story on NPR's Morning Edition. It was about Project Budburst which is tracking climate change in a decidedly low tech way: home gardener observations. They call it "citizen science" and it is quite easy. Basically you identify a plant, figure out when it is going to bloom and record daily observations as it does. You can see the full set of instructions here.
