Phenology is the study of seasonal changes in plants and animals that can be observed in one's own backyard or community. It is everything from breaking leaf buds and flowers, falling seeds and leaves and the return of birds in the spring. This webinar will focus on how to get started, what to observe, how to record and enter data into Nature’s Notebook and what we have learned in MN from historical data. Nature’s Notebook is part of the National Phenological Network that has over 1500 observers in MN alone and whose data is available for your use. Join us to learn "Phenology 101" and become a life-long phenologist.
