Inaugural Phenology Day April 20

USA National Phenology Network
April 18, 2013

Join us for the inaugural Phenology Day in Tucson on April 20th, 2013 from 9:00 am - 3:00 pm beginning at the Pima County Extension Office - 4210 N. Campbell Ave. Phenology, or the study of life cycle events in plants and animals and their relationship to the environment, is an important indicator of climate change. We have a local Tucson Phenology Trail, established to answer local research questions and contribute to the national phenology database, via the Nature's Notebook citizen science program. The database and Nature's Notebook program were created and housed by the USA National Phenology Network. Making phenology observations is a fun way to learn about the timing of seasonal events and get outdoors!

Sponsored by the USA-NPN, Pima Cooperative Extension, the Campus Arboretum, Santa Rita Experimental Range, Tucson Audubon Society, and the Sam Hughes and Rincon Heights Neighborhoods, Phenology Day is a family event that highlights all of the sites on the Tucson Phenology Trail.
