Local Phenology Leaders Community of Practice
Join a growing group of active leaders who are using Nature's Notebook as an education, science, or managment project for engaging volunteers in collecting phenology observations in their communities. The Local Phenology Leader Community of Practice is a place to connect and communicate with staff at the USA-NPN's National Coordinating Office and with other leaders who use Nature's Notebook as part of their organization's programming.
The LPL Community of Practice
The USA-NPN's Education Coordinator organizes monthly Leader's calls and facilitates discussion in our online community space on Facebook. We discuss topics of relevance to groups getting started and those continuing with long-term monitoring projects. Topics include, but are not limited to:
- Program planning and implementation
- Volunteer engagement via Nature's Notebook
- Ideas for advanced training topics
- Review of the monitoring protocols
To suggest a topic for a call, email firstname.lastname@example.org. Join the email list to be notified of the monthly meeting agenda. Talk to you soon!
