Conestee Phenology Trail

We are using Nature's Notebook to create a community engagement, student education, and ecological monitoring tool at our non-profit nature preserve, which is free to the public and accessible to great variety of people. We will coordinate several tiers of data collection: Comprehensive phenological monitoring, to inform our conservation and land stewardship priorities; School group activities, to include phenology into our educational programming; Incidental and opportunistic data collection from visitors to the preserve, to bolster engagement from community members in science and ecological monitoring.
