Master Gardener Training Course, version 2
This 3 hour workshop was presented in the Pima County Master Gardener training course, Spring 2013. It includes a lecture on the definition and history of phenological studies, an overview of climate and life zones, species and diversity as well as a section on direct phenology application for the Master Gardeners. Included is an outline of the talk, powerpoint slides, and evaluation handout.
The course also included a hands on introduction to data collection at the Pima Extension site, using the installed phenology walk as well as a 12 week independent data collection assignment with data interpretation.
At the conclusion of the 12 week session, a full suite of materials and information will be posted on the USA-NPN website so this workshop can be recreated for audiences such as Master Naturalists, Master Forest Volunteers, etc. Outcomes will also be reported for reference.
