Welcome to the Minnesota Phenology Network

Every plant and animal is part of a story that affects us all: the well-being of the environment. By tracking changes in the natural world—from bloom times to breeding patterns—we learn more about that story, how it’s impacting us and what we can do about it.

It’s your story, too. Be part of it. Learn more about phenology and how you can join researchers and nature lovers across Minnesota to tell your piece of the story. We have a bigger impact when we all share what we see happening in nature and work together.
