Great Smoky Mountains NP

We intend to use Nature's Notebook as a gathering place for the phenological data collected so that everyone can follow the same protocols and have an organized place to store it. Additionally, Nature's Notebook helps us with providing a multitude of resources to help both new staff members and volunteers at our National Park to access the information that they need to make the project successful. Lastly, we want the data we're collecting to be accessable and useful to many other organizations and researchers and Nature's Notebook makes that easy to do.
