Daniel Stowe Botanical Garden

Daniel Stowe Botanical Garden's primary purpose in creating a phenology 'walk' is outreach and engagement of our school groups, volunteers and Garden guests. Through community engagement, visitors will select visitation of spaces underutilized while making connections in nature. School groups will learn about phenology, make 'big picture' connections and potentially begin the journey of becoming citizen scientists.
Their science question is broad-based yet relevant enough to the general Garden audience.
"How do changes in season affect native plant species over time?"
Twenty-five select tree, fern and wildflower plots have been identified for observation in the Garden in Belmont, NC, on the existing Persimmon Trail, easily accessible to all participants making observations.
