Celebrating 10 Years of Nature’s Notebook
This month, we take a look back at the many accomplishments of the Network over the last 10 years. Our Annual Reports capture stories of how Nature's Notebook data are advancing the field of phenology, how decision makers use USA-NPN data and data products to make more effective decisions, and how Local Phenology Program partners engage local communities in meaningful citizen science experiences. You can explore these stories in our archive of past Annual Reports.
How your data are being used
Observing nature is fun. But it also serves a greater purpose. Your observations of plants or animals inform scientific discovery and decision-making:
- Scientists use your data in groundbreaking research.
- Land managers use them to make better-informed decisions about natural resources in their care.
- Decision-makers use them to determine policy.
