Bagley Nature Area

Bagley Nature Area is a part of the Lake Superior Phenology Network supported by American Society of Plant Biologists, University of Minnesota - Duluth and the National Science Foundation in Duluth, MN. The goal of the project is to set up at least three phenology trails in Duluth that target similar plant species across a broad climatic gradient and develop resources to help citizen scientists understand their data in the context of larger databases. Nature’s Notebook provides the rigor and standardization needed to answer questions about how climate change might affect local plants, but also the accessibility for volunteers toadd, view, and explore data using resources such as the visualization tools developed by the National Phenology Network.
