CU Denver Phenology Observers

We aim to use Nature's Notebook to give students the opportunity to engage in meaningful science and data collection within the Denver metro region. A second goal of this program is to collect data on how tree phenology varies within the Denver metro region, and use this for the basis for research on urban forest health, spatial distribution of ecosystem services within urban areas, and urban forest response to climate change.
