Phenology Trail

Posted by Laura Hainsworth
Phenology is the study of the timing of plant and animal lifecycle events as they relate to seasonal changes in climate and other habitat factors.  Students at E&H are establishing a phenology trail, where visitors are invited to make observations and take photos, then upload these into a Field Station database.  Over time, we will develop a better understanding of how events like wildflower blooms and the onset of spring peepers relate to our changing climate.
