2016 Maricopa Master Gardener Presentation
This 3 hour presentation covered phenology as it relates to climate change, and how to be involved in research, via Nature’s Notebook, to help ecologists and land managers better understand how species are responding to climate change. This is an introductory presenation to acclimate participants to the concept of phenology monitoring and how keeping records of their own can be used for personal, societal, and scientific understanding of the phenology of plants and animals. A follow up advanced training will be hosted to walk participants through using Nature's Notebook, making observations outside, and using the visualization tools to analyze data.
