Mars Hill University Arboretum and Tree Trail

Mars Hill University Arboretum and Tree Trail has a Arboretum and Tree Trail which is a fairly new resource on our Mars Hill, NC campus.  We want to get students more involved in the community, and the community more involved on campus, both centered around a citizen science project on campus. Additionally, our science department (Biology and Zoology) has a goal of giving students more practice with quantitative skills. Collecting, managing, and analyzing phenology data will provide some of that practice. These needs will be addressed by having students enter and use the data within the Nature's Notebook database.
