The National Phenology Database, maintained by the USA-NPN, is experiencing steady growth in the number of data records it houses. By the end of CY 2012, professional and volunteer participants in the USA-NPN national-scale, multi-taxa phenology observation program Nature's Notebook had contributed over 1.5 million observation records (encompassing four and three years of observations for plants and for animals, respectively).
Southeast Arizona experiences unique changes throughout the seasons. What are your favorite seasonal hallmarks; hummingbirds at your backyard feeder in winter, Mexican free-tailed bats emerging from bridges on summer evenings, Monsoon wildflowers? Have you noticed how these events change with local weather and annual climate? Join us for a conversation about observing birds, insects, plants, and other animals in the Sonoran Desert and Sky Islands throughout our changing seasons.
This 1 hour webinar was presented to the Signs of the Seasons volunteer group and demonstrates how to move through the process of entering data online in Nature's Notebook. You can also find written instructions on how to do so by visiting our Learn How to Observe Page.
