Participate in the Watchman Trail Wildflower Phenology Study

Citizen Science Opportunity March - October
Phenology is the study of the timing of plant and animal life cycle events. Monitoring these events helps us better understand how the timing of these events are related to climate. You can help park scientists with a wildflower phenology study.

A wildflower phenology study has been set up along the Watchman Trail. Plants have been selected for observation along the lower portion of the trail and are identified with plant markers. Participants record the status of the plant, whether it is budding, flowering, or fruiting using the Zion Phenology web app. No prior experience needed. The Zion Phenology web app includes pictures and definitions to aid participants. Requires the use of a mobile device with service. Click below to open the Zion Phenology web app:
