As part of the Hawthorne Valley Farmscape Ecology Program, we have been helping to facilitate phenology monitoring sites and programming throughout our area and build our local phenology data. At the Martin Van Buren Historic Site the primary purpose of the phenology trail will be to facilitate public engagement with phenology and the local effects of climate change in an agricultural landscape, by providing modern data that might be compared to phenology data collected in the same town in the 1830s and 1840s (during the time Martin Van Buren lived in Kinderhook).
