Celebrating 10 Years of Nature’s Notebook
This month we are pleased to share our 10-year anniversary commemorative poster! This poster depicts four seasons of phenological activity centered around a cottonwood tree. An observer is kneeling in a meadow, recording her observations in Nature's Notebook. The poster was created by Cara Gibson and inspired by the Works Progress Administration-style art of the 1930s. There will be several opportunities to receive your copy of the poster advertised in our newsletters this year. Sign up here.
How your data are being used
Observing nature is fun. But it also serves a greater purpose. Your observations of plants or animals inform scientific discovery and decision-making:
- Scientists use your data in groundbreaking research.
- Land managers use them to make better-informed decisions about natural resources in their care.
- Decision-makers use them to determine policy.
