Education resource file: 

Do you manage a group of volunteers who are regularly collecting Nature's Notebook observations at your Local Phenology Project site? To keep people engaged and interested in monitoring for a period of a year or more, make sure to keep it interesting and provide them with opportunities to get together with each other, share what they are observing, and socialize. This tip sheet includes ideas for keeping your monitoring program fresh and engaging so volunteers will continue to be excited about returning to make their observations.
