Want to start a Phenology  Trail?

Are you someone who enjoys creating relationships in your community? Are you good at organizing events and people? If you work with a number of agencies in your area and would like to create shared meaningful programming, then establishing a Phenology Trail is a great place to start by monitoring phenology in service to a shared research question or outreach and education strategy.  

For more information on what to do review our Phenology Trail resources and Program Planning Materials. If you still have questions contact the USA-NPN's Education Coordinator.
