Dr. Nash Turley introduces his project, Lawn to Wildflowers, a community science effort focused on converting lawns to pollinator-friendly wildflower habitat while engaging the public in collecting plant pollinator data.
The project includes a mobile app that educates users about pollinator natural history and lawn restoration techniques while helping them to find and purchase native plants and seeds.
