Nature's Timekeepers


With help of many of you, we have designed three nature trails this last year in Duluth. Thank you! Now, we are looking for dedicated volunteers who want to learn about plant phenology (i.e., life cycle changes) and visit a nature trail about once a month over the next three years. The timing of your visits are up to you. If you prefer a nice leisurely walk in the evening or one in the middle of the day, it doesn't matter. All you need to do is learn how to document what you see, enter it into an app and then you can become part of a great community of phenologists and help us understand how the climate our forests.

Please join us and volunteer to be a Timekeeper!
