ACParks

A long term monitoring program with Nature's Notebook will allow ACParks in Fort Wayne, Indiana to better understand their native plant, and animal populations. Of particular interest is the migratory animal (insect) populations seen in the parks. Recent changes in forested areas can be better managed if they monitor and record the effects of these changes. The data collected will be a tremendous resource for the school and adult groups lead in the parks. Also being monitored are the life cycles of the park's amphibian, butterfly and dragonfly populations.
