Community science opportunity for groups, students, and individuals!

Do you have an interest in ecology, botany, or science? Do you make observations about what plants are starting to leaf-out, flower, or drop fruit? Would you like to contribute to a national dataset used by researchers across the globe?

Join the Bosque Ecosystem Monitoring Program, Railyard Park Conservancy, Santa Fe Botanical Gardens, and the Randall Davey Audubon Center for a special Community Science Training on Aug. 29th from 9am-3pm.

Learn how to make community science observations in your own backyard AND at three special locations here in Santa Fe (Railyard Park, Botanical Gardens, and Randall Davey). Participants will learn how to add observational data to the national USA Phenology Network’s online resource – Nature’s Notebook. Once the training is complete, participants will also have an opportunity to contribute to the Santa Fe Botanical Gardens upcoming Bio-Blitz.

Phenology is the study of cyclic and seasonal natural phenomena, especially in relation to the climate, plant, and animal life.

Join us for an afternoon of hands-on learning! We will meet at the Railyard Park’s Community Room and then head out to the Botanical Gardens up on Museum Hill.

Bring a lunch, notebook, and pen!

Free, but registration is required. To register or for more info email: shannon@railyardpark.org
