Iowa Lakeside Lab Backyard Observers

Iowa Lakeside Lab is a 111-year old field research station in NW Iowa. We believe it is the perfect place to engage the community with citizen science. Nature's Notebook offers us a platform to readily and easily encourage people to learn more about phenology and participate in the outdoors. With campus closures due to COVID-19, we have established a group where students will participate from their own locations until we are able to return to observing on campus.
