Thursday – Join us as we explore the fascinating field of phenology – the study of recurring plant and animal life cycle events such as leafing and flowering of plants, emergence of insects and migration of birds. We’ll become citizen scientists as we make observations at select locations along the trail and record our findings on datasheets. We’ll then discuss how data like ours is used by scientists worldwide to understand the relationship between life cycle events and environmental change. What to bring: Closed-toe shoes, water, hat, sunscreen. Meet inside the Visitor Center. 10-11:30am.
