Eau Claire Garden Club Presents: Phenology in a Changing Climate
Phenology is the study of recurring plant and animal life cycle stages, especially their timing and relationships with weather and climate. This data provides tangible evidence of the impacts of climate change on the biosphere. Gardeners can help record this crucial information through online resources provided by the USA National Phenology Network (USA-NPN, www.usanpn.org).
Participants will learn:
• How changes in the start of the growing season have played out over the last century, especially in North America.
• How the start and end of the growing season can be measured in different and complementary ways.
• How to observe and record observations from of the start and end of the growing season in our area, as well as other phenological events.
Presented by Mark D. Schwartz, phenoclimatologist and distinguished professor of Geography at the University of Wisconsin–Milwaukee.
