Marsh Bloom Time Monitoring
We seek to train and schedule volunteers to assist with the Marsh Plant Phenology Monitoring Trail. Learn how tracking the timing of life stages of plants helps us study climate change effects, using world-wide databases. Volunteers must be able to safely and comfortably paddle a canoe—all monitoring is from a boat. A monitoring schedule will be created at the time of the training.
