We train teachers to do phenological field work with their students as a citizen science initiative and for the purpose of teaching and learning the skills that are practiced in long-term field investigations in life science. We envision that teachers will do a combination of secondary research, looking at collected data, and active field work to collect more data. In the professional development sessions we've modeled with the question based on early leaf-out of oaks in Colorado that lead to a chain of events, "Why did the oak leaves come out early?"
