Citizen Science - Chasing the Green Wave
Volunteers are invited to take a tour through the woodlands of the Center to see what trees and other plants are leafing out and flowering. Birds and other migratory animals are on the move, some of them surfing the ‘green wave’ of plant growth across the landscape. Discover the interactions between plants and animals as the season passes. Explore ways you can volunteer to help scientist unravel the details of phenological mismatch- when the timing of animal emergence and migration no longer overlap with resources provided by plants at specific times of the year. Then make plans to get outside and see what’s budding and blooming next.
