UNC Asheville

UNC Asheville has established two phenology gardens on their campus (sun and shade) as part of a NSF-funded project. They plan to use students (both research and classroom) to monitor phenophases in these gardens for many years to come. They plan to eventually install a phenology trail for use with other groups (K-12, community groups, etc.). They are collaborating with two other regional universities, Appalachian State University and Warren Wilson College, who are also installing similar gardens and trails. Nature's Notebook will allow multiple trained people to enter phenology data on their sites.
