Welcome to the Minnesota Phenology Network

Phenology is the study of the timing of seasonal change in plant and animal species.  Increasingly, researchers are recognizing the importance of phenology data to understanding the pattern and nature of climate change in Minnesota.  If you enjoy observing and tracking seasonal changes around you, your observations can contribute to something much bigger—they can fill gaps in Minnesota’s phenological records.  This site provides all the information you need to get involved, including guides to consistent observation, a simple reporting interface, and connections to other Minnesota observers. 


Please join us for the Minnesota Phenology Network 5th annual gathering in Sandstone MN, May 16-18th.  Registration and more information can be found here:  http://tinyurl.com/ll579wt
