VINS Phenology Study

Vermont Institute of Natural Science in Quechee completed construction of a forest canopy walk on our campus. Most of this walk is ADA compliant and allows visitors to walk into the canopy of the forest and above the canopy up a tower that extends over the treeline. This new feature is a perfect location to observe phenological changes and create a long term data set for our campus using Nature's Notebook. The data generated from this Nature's Notebook project will be combined with our other research projects on campus.
