The 606-Chicago

The science question for The Environmental Sentinel of The 606 is "How will Lake Michigan affect the bloom times of temperature sensitive blooming trees planted the 2.7 mile length of The 606 trail?" Phenology observations will be made by staff of The Trust for Public Land, adults trained to serve as lead volunteers, teachers and their students, as well as visitors to the trail as part of workshops, pop-up programs and community engagement. Observations will be taken on Amelanchier X grandiflora - Autumn Brilliance, common lilacs - forsythia and pollinators.
