USA National Phenology Network
July 24, 2017
The USA-NPN has recieved the 2017 Outstanding Achievement Award from the Renewable Natural Resouces Foundation recognizing our Start of Spring maps and access tools. These maps are based on decades of plant phenology data, and predict when spring has arrived across the country.
If you live in Southeastern Arizona, you can help the US Fish & Wildlife Service document flowering of agave and saguaro cactus during the spring and summer flowering periods, an effort called Flowers for Bats. This information will be used by the FWS to conserve and promote habitat for lesser long-nosed bats. Observers in other areas can visit the Nature's Notebook campaigns page to find out how to participate in other campaigns.
