Phenology is the study of seasonal changes in nature.
We are working to gather baseline data on leafing, fruiting and flowering of common native plants in all 92 Indiana counties with the help of volunteers just like you.

Our volunteer observers use Nature's Notebook, a program developed by the USA National Phenology Network, to observe and record information on plant phenology. Observations made by Indiana Phenology volunteers contribute to the study of the impacts of a changing environment on people and ecosystems. Along the way, we promote the development of observation skills, cultivate an appreciation for nature, and ignite curiosity and wonder.
