March Brown Bag Seminar
Along the Rio Grande Phenology Trail; taking the pulse of the Bosque, taking the pulse of the planet!
This presentation will introduce phenology (fe-nol-ogy), the study of cyclic and seasonal natural phenomena, especially in relation to climate, and plant and animal life. The Rio Grande Phenology Trail is a citizen science project where observers document the timing of life cycle events in plants and animals in the Bosque.
Join Tallie Segel, an educator for the Bosque Ecosystem Monitoring Program and coordinator of the Rio Grande Phenology Trail, to learn more about how the trails’ diverse observers are working to collect phenology data on plants and animals in the Rio Grande watershed that will support research on plant and animal responses to climate change.
Established in 2013, the Rio Grande Phenology Trail is a collaborative citizen science monitoring project run by the USA National Phenology Network.
