Arizona Senior Academy Nature's Notebook Presentation

This introduction to Nature's Notebook was given by USA-NPN Outreach Coordinator Erin Posthumus at the Arizona Senior Academy's monthly lecture series.

The presentation involved 30 minutes of indoor presentation on early phenologists and record keeping, phenological changes in the Southwest, and how to get started with Nature's Notebook.

The remianing 30 minutes were spent practicing making observations with the Nature's Notebook simplified phenophase definitions outside, and then re-grouping to discuss what participants had observed. 

A sign-up sheet was passed around to allow participants to indicate their interest in participating in Nature's Notebook at the Arizona Senior Academy (as part of the Tucson Phenology Trail). One participant volunteered to serve as Local Phenology Leader.
