Smith College Bio 131

Smith College's Bio 131 class is using Nature's Notebook to help our students learn to observe the natural environment around them and on campus, and see how changes in climate and effects of invasive species affect the environment. We aim to increase knowledge of competition between invasive and native plants on their campus, which could be applied to managing the invasive species along the Mill River waterfront on the campus grounds in Northampton, MA.  We would also like to establish a more accessible database for use by students in the course as well as the Smith College Botanic Gardens.
