PhenoChamp Winners and Annual Reports

Sixth Annual Winners

The 6th Annual PhenoChampion is Washington Square EcoParks! 

Since 2019, students in NYU’s Ecological Field Methods class have participated in the Washington Square Park Phenology Project, led by Dr. Georgia Silvera-Seamans. Following a lecture about tree identification and a walking tour of the park, students are assigned a tree to monitor weekly throughout the Fall semester using the Nature’s Notebook App. The students sketch the leaves and bark and research their species. Visiting their trees every week, the students become attached to their tree as they watch it change.

WSP Eco Projects is an exemplary program that engages both with their students and community. Learn more about Washington Square Park Eco Projects.
