In collaboration with Appalachian Headwaters, join us for an educational afternoon in the forest, fields, and ponds of the Yew Mountain Center.
We will learn how to observe the exciting changes in plant and animal activity throughout the seasons and participate in a scientific study called Phenology.
Become a keen steward of your land by setting up a "phenological trail." Through watchful eyes, discover "phenological events" among different species, like robins returning in the spring, the very first oak leaves to bud out or when the maples change colors in the fall, just to name a few.
Become a valuable link to the larger phenological network. With the information you collect, this data helps scientists to make predictions about the environment, assess vulnerable species, or even enhance farming practices!
Kids may accompany parents or can come to the Kids Booth where they can learn about Nature's Calendar and make their own nature journal to take home with them. Must be accompanied by adult under age 5.
