We hope that you and your loved ones are healthy and weathering the upheaval and uncertainty of the current public health crisis. Know that our Nature's Notebook program and other phenology data products will continue to be available to you.

Observations of phenology can provide a welcome respite during this time, and can provide an activity for families to do together while stuck at home. "Citizen science programs offer myriad options for something to do that is both meaningful and educational," wrote Theresa Crimmins in a recent Op-Ed in the Arizona Daily Star. For our Local Phenology Leaders, you can view resources on how to remotely engage your participants in our recent Newsletter for partners. Be well!
