Homeschool: Buds and Blooms
Homeschool students will learn about phenology – the study of recurring plant and animal life cycle events such as leafing and flowering of plants and emergence of insect pollinators.
On a one-mile hike students observe plants for buds, flowers and insects and record data on a worksheet.
Join us as we explore the fascinating field of phenology – the study of recurring plant and animal life cycle events such as leafing and flowering of plants, emergence of insects and migration of birds. We’ll become citizen scientists as we make observations at select locations along the trail and record our findings on datasheets. We’ll then discuss how data like ours is used by scientists worldwide to understand the relationship between life cycle events and environmental change. The walk is one mile on moderate terrain. What to bring: Closed-toe shoes, water, hat, sunscreen. Meet inside the Visitor Center. 10-11:30am
