--A phenology & citizen science workshop on Butte Creek--
Anyone can document the seasonal changes of Fremontís Cottonwood (Populus fremontii). Your observations, during the workshop and onward, will begin our monitoring project on Butte Creek, and become part of the nation-wide effort to document when yearly cycles are occurring in species vulnerable to the effects of climate change. Plus, noticing the yearly changes in our plant and animal neighbors is key to being a naturalistóit will change your life!
After the workshop, participants are invited to lend a hand with the continued restoration of Butte Creek.
This event is in partnership with the National Phenology Network's 'Nature's Notebook,' and the Butte Creek Restoration and Education Project.
*Phenology is the study of re-occurring life cycles in plants and animals, especially in relation to climate.
The Natural History Institute is located on the Butte Creek-facing side of the 312 Grove building at Prescott College. It is found northwest of the Sheldon and Grove intersection.
This event is free and open to the public.
