Since 2017, Wildflower Watch has worked with hundreds of citizen scientists to collect phenology data in the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem (GYE). This project was inspired by the work of Dr. Frank Craighead who made phenology observations in the 1970s and wrote the popular book For Everything There Is a Season. We are building on his legacy and collecting contemporary observations in the same locations as Craighead, as well as other locations throughout the GYE. Already we have noticed many plants blooming up to 3 weeks earlier than first observed in the 1970s. Please reach out to Trevor.Bloom@tnc.org to get involved and learn about free learning opportunities. Wildflower Watch is lead in partnership with USANPN by The Nature Conservancy and Northern Rockies Conservation Cooperative.
