The Bates College Phenology Group (currently moderated by Dr. Allyson Eller) seeks to improve our knowledge of the phenology of local species in central Maine so that we can identify phenological shifts in response to climate change. We are using Nature's Notebook to facilitate data collection by students, staff, and faculty at Bates College and citizen-scientists from the larger Lewiston-Auburn community.
Beaver Ponds Environmental Education Center will continue tracking phenology using Nature's Notebook
The Bosque Ecosystem Monitoring Program (BEMP) in Albuquerque, NM is currently performing citizen science monitoring of the bosque, which is Rio Grande riparian ecosystem, with local schools around Albuquerque and New Mexico. Using Nature's Notebook will add a phenology-related piece to their educational programming happening with about 40 different education groups (classes, scouts, etc) each year. The partnership aims to help students feel a connection to their landscape through careful monitoring and observing of the changing seasons in the bosque. Some of the speciees being monitored include: cottonwood - P. deltoides (native), Siberian elm - U. pumila (exotic), tamarisk - Tamarix sp. (exotic).
