Phenology Scavenger Hunt Activity

Participants search phenology gardens or outdoor habitats for seasonally-available plant structures (plant phenophases monitored by the USA National Phenology Network). Once found, participants photograph, illustrate, describe, or collect and curate the plant phenophases.  Created by Susan Mazer, Alisa Hove, and Brian Haggerty at the University of California, Santa Barbara, as part of the Phenological Literacy: Understanding Through Science and Stewardship Program (PLUSS).
