Sample agenda for 3-hour field lab using Nature's Notebook at a Local Phenology Program location

Here is a sample outdoor-only workshop conducted at a Local Phenology Program location. This 3-hour workshop followed a 3-hour classroom session with hands-on activities designed to introduce participants (in this case, Master Naturalists) to Nature's Notebook observing. See the classroom session materials in our workshop archive.

Included here are pre-workshop information and email, the sample agenda, the phenophase scavenger hunt activity, a phenophase photo guide activity, and a final evaluation. For this lab we used the Pre-Post Evaluation form on the Evaluation Activities link.

Materials used for this session, in addition to those included:

  • A map of the location indicating plants marked for observation
  • Phenophase photo guides for the species marked for observation
  • Paper datasheets for the species marked for observation
  • Clipboards and pencils (for those using paper data sheets)
