A new national program by USA-National Phenology Network and the U.S. Geological Survey along with other agencies is asking for citizen volunteers to observe and record findings on changes occuring in the world of nature. Starting in the spring, the garden begins to emerge, migrations are taking place and changes in the plant and animal world are occuring. This program is looking for volunteers to spend a few minutes recording what is occuring in their backyards which will give scientist a view of the entire country and the changes YOU the citizen scientist are experiencing.
From the classroom to the backyard, there is a program that will help collect information and help form a more comprehensive database. Want to volunteer? Check out their website below for more information.
