Want to join our Tucson Phenology Trail? We are looking for like-minded organizations to use phenology as a science and outreach tool in their existing programs. If your group:
- Provides outdoor education opportunities, teaches about ecology, science and climate literacy, and encourages spending time in nature
- Is a school or program looking to connect with a long-term scientific research project
- Has a site that is staffed by volunteers or paid staff members interested in leading programs related to phenology, who can be a site "phenology champion"
- Can commit to facilitating repeated phenology observation through time for our national phenology database
Then we invite you to join us! Contact our Education Coordinator for more details on how to participate and partner your organization.
