Jamaica Bay Wildlife Refuge
We are using Nature's Notebook to increase student awareness of the natural world through phenological monitoring. Our program encourages students to make careful observations of plants in the Jamaica Bay Wildlife Refuge’s pollinator garden, many of which are widespread natives that can be found in our student’s neighborhoods. Data collection through Nature’s Notebook will reinforce STEM concepts from the classroom, giving students a perspective on how existential problems – like climate change, could be assessed at a hyper-local level by regular citizens, and empowering them by collecting valuable data for the park and the public.
