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 changes in plants and animals over time.
