As a seasonal ranger, one of the topics we interpret is climate change, this is relevant because we have F1 hybrid aspens here that are relicts from the last ice age. Nature's Notebook is one way we collect data to see how climate change is affecting trees in the area. As a middle school science teacher, I want to instill in my students a love for the precious resource they have right here, and get them to see that they can contribute in meaningful ways to science and policy.
