City of Boulder Open Space and Mountain Parks Citizen Science Phenology Program

City of Boulder Open Space and Mountain Parks Citizen Science Phenology Program is using Nautre's Notebook for phenological observation and recording using the USA-NPN standardized protocols. We have completed a 2-year pilot program of phenological plant monitoring with multiple volunteer observers at four sites (trails) that monitors four species of native shrubs.  We would like to contribute the data and attribute the observations to multiple observers. We have not determined if we will repeat the monitoring of the marked plants, but if we do, being a group facilitates data entry using an app.  In addition, we may do other types of phenological monitoring using this group in the future.
