CCA Phenology Project

California College of the Arts is using Nature's Notebook to collect student observations over time. We aim to have students document trees and plants in an area that will soon be disturbed and to learn to identify specific trees and plants. Our students "adopt" a plant or tree, and follow it through the season. Over time we hope the project enhances student learning about plants, ecosystems, and climate change.
