Starting April 4th!
Citizen Science - Participate in the Watchman Phenology Trail.
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 plant phenology study.
A plant phenology trail has been set up along the Watchman Trail. Twelve plants have been selected for observation along the trail and are identified with plant markers. Participants record the status of the plant, whether it is budding, flowering or fruiting. Observations are recorded on the ‘Watchman Phenology Trail’ datasheet. No prior experience needed.
Send us an email and we will send you everything you need to help with this study.
