Submit Observations Online

The final step in observing is to submit your observations online via your Nature's Notebook account.

In your Observation Deck, select the correct group (using the dropdown under Sites) or public site from the list of sites. Go to "Enter Observations" in the right hand box on the Observation Deck. Each column on this page represents one visit’s worth of observations at a site. Enter the date and time of your visit at the top of a column, as well as any additional information (e.g., snow on the ground) from your coversheet. Then for each of your plants and animals, click 'y', 'n', or '?' for each phenophase. If you did not check for a particular phenophase, do not click any of the choices. You can report intensity or abundance for any phenophase for which you clicked 'y' or '?' by selecting a value from the "What value?" dropdown menu, or entering a number in the "How many?" box. When you are finished, click the 'Submit observations' button in the lower left corner of the screen.  More...
