Central Arizona Phenology Trail
The Central Arizona Phenology Trail encourages people to engage in active, outdoor education, ask and answer local science, management and climate questions, and connect like-minded organizations together through a shared community project.
The Central Arizona Phenology Trail consists of walks at our wonderful partnering organization sites. Partner locations include:
- The Highlands Center for Natural History on Walker Road
- Find Highlands Center Trail #442 where plants are tagged for observation
- Fremont cottonwoods are being monitored along Butte Creek as part of USA-NPN's Green Wave Southwest campaign. Prescott College and the City of Prescott plan to develop a phenology trail as part of the future Greenways Trail System along Lower Butte Creek.The public is welcome on campus, especially during daylight hours.
- Contact Royce or Nita for more information by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or via phone at 928-308-2872
Be sure to visit each of these locations to check out the tagged plants and animals and make some phenology observations. Each site offers many other natural history, environmental, gardening and other great programs, so be sure to see what else you can learn while there!
