If you are a Local Phenology Leader who would like to complete or update your LPPs listing, please contact groups@usanpn.org.

We are using Nature's Notebook to offer Oro Valley residents a safe outdoor activity in existing parks and hiking trails that will introduce them to citizen science activities that can be used to monitor the local environment.

California College of the Arts is using Nature's Notebook to collect student observations over time. We aim to have students document trees and plants in an area that will soon be disturbed and to learn to identify specific trees and plants. Our students "adopt" a plant or tree, and follow it through the season. Over time we hope the project enhances student learning about plants, ecosystems, and climate change.

Organization staff, volunteers, school groups will be using Nature's Notebook to create a data stream to the National Phenological Network and increase membership and involvement at Chik-Wauk Museum and Nature Center in Grand Marais, MN. They want to promote nature center members to observe seasonal changes more critically and provide additional opportunities for visitors to engage in.

City of Boulder Open Space and Mountain Parks Citizen Science Phenology Program is using Nautre's Notebook for phenological observation and recording using the USA-NPN standardized protocols. We have completed a 2-year pilot program of phenological plant monitoring with multiple volunteer observers at four sites (trails) that monitors four species of native shrubs.  We would like to contribute the data and attribute the observations to multiple observers. We have not determined if we will repeat the monitoring of the marked plants, but if we do, being a group facilitates data entry using an app.  In addition, we may do other types of phenological monitoring using this group in the future.

Nature's Notebook provides an opportunity for the community (school groups & families) to engage in an activity that promotes being outdoors, observing nature and learning about their outdoor environment. The continuous nature of Nature's Notebook is ideal for connecting people to a specific location over time.

Colorado National Monument is using Nature's Notebook for our Cottonwood Observation Project to establish a site where students, volunteers, employees and community members can contribute to creating a baseline of phenological observations of a cottonwood species and for this site to be an experiential education resource and a springboard for climate change dialogue. We will work with community members including scientists, teachers, and CMU professors to establish a monitoring program that emphasizes citizen science and climate change communication. New recruitment of pioneer cottonwood in riparian areas in the arid southwest is threatened by climate change impacts and phenologlical observations of the species could inform research if hotter/earlier spring temperatures are quickening historic seed dispersal trends.
