Citizen Science Phenology Nature Trail
WCF is working with its partners to use existing nature trails at local venues as outdoor classrooms for Citizen Science phenology* programs. Grade-level appropriate activities teach scientific methods of study and data collection and encourage students to formulate and answer questions. Data collected by students becomes part of the National Phenology Network database which is used by scientists in their studies.
*Phenology: the study of seasonal changes in plants and animals.
Leave No Trace
Leave No Trace is a set of outdoor ethics promoting conservation in the outdoors built on seven core principles that are used to communicate how to minimize impact while enjoying the outdoors. These Principles are the most robust and widely utilized minimum impact outdoor practices. These can be applied anywhere - from the backcountry, to local parks, to your backyard - and for any recreational activity.
Our one-hour awareness class is presented in a fun, interactive manner.
