Regional Phenology Networks
Regional Phenology Networks (RPNs) are an aggregation of phenology Groups, either as part of a local Phenology Trail or collection of participating Groups in a given region of the United States. Phenology Network Coordinators (PNCs) are those people who serve to organize the Regional Phenology Network, provide training and resources at the local level, recruit and retain volunteers across monitoring Groups, host events and outings, and are liaisons between the Regional Phenology Network and the broader USA National Phenology Network.

Want to start a Regional Phenology Network?
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 Regional Phenology Network is a great place to start. You can organize yourself in a Phenology Trail, where phenology monitoring occurs in service to a shared research question or outreach and education strategy.
Join our Local Phenology Leaders Community of Practice when you establish your role as Network Organizer! For more information on what to do, how to get started, or how to join the community of practice, contact the USA-NPN's Education Coordinator.
