    The data we will collect will be sent to the USA National Phenology Network, which makes it available to researchers who are trying to understand the biological mechanisms behind seasonal changes and how they are influenced by a changing climate.
    Note: Weekly walks may be subject to schedule changes. Questions? Contact Ingrid at zabel@priweb.org.
