LPPs with Impact Statements

Here you will find our list of Local Phenology Projects using Nature's Notebook who have provided us with their LPP's Impact Statement. If a group listed has a blank entry or is missing information, they have not updated their information with our staff in 2019.

Two phenology efforts are ongoing at the Arnold, including the Native and Indicator Observation Program and the Tree Spotters program.

Earthwise Aware (EwA) is a Nature conservation nonprofit in Massachusetts and the NPN addresses our standards for standardized scientific protocol rigor, global data, and open science. We focus on Biodiversity and how to protect it.

Concretely, we are dedicated/committed to bringing biodiversity knowledge, ecological ethics and environmental leadership at the core of communities and organizations / in the daily life of people.

One of our main outreach is through Co-creative Biodiversity & Climate citizen science programs to engage communities in helping, contributing to, collaborating in scientific endeavors.

Our citizen science principles are to:
- Advance Biodiversity & Climate research
- Give Science back to the people

Our Citizen Science pillars are:
(1) Species & ecosystems knowledge
(2) Ecological ethics
(3) Open and global science
(4) Democratization of science

We run several programs in Massachusetts. One of our programs happens at the Middlesex Fells Reservation (2800 acres of forested uplands and wetlands): ‘EwA at the Fells’. This is where we actively record via Nature’s notebook. We use other global platforms for other kinds of biodiversity recording. We collaborate with experts and scientists and study various habitats at different levels (species occurrence & abundance, phenology, plant community assessment, etc.). The intent is to build a continuous natural history of the place through habitat/species surveillance/monitoring and phenology recording, and aligning as well with standards as developed by GEO BON (global biodiversity observation network). Our program at the Fells program engages its participants in observing birds, amphibians, insects, fungi, plants, etc. We also pay attention to the relationships between species and reflect on the meaning and implications of these relationships in relation to the forest, the cities around and further away. This intimate system-focused exploration helps to build a deep understanding of the place through rapid habitat-changing conditions and over time for the benefits of the Fells, its scientists, and ultimately our  communities.

There are several species that we are monitoring among which some rare or endangered species (and for which we record information for our local scientist connections).

With time and with a growing number of participants, we will increase the list of species we monitor.

Oregon Season Tracker is a Regional Phenology Network. Headed up by Jody Einerson, our project of Oregon State University aims to link natural resource managers, educators, researchers and others in the community to the science they use through collaborative citizen science. Oregon Season Tracker is working with researchers from OSU and HJ Andrews Experimental Foresty LTER to expand climate data and open channels of communication with the public across all of Oregon.

Pepperwood is an ecological institute dedicated to educating, engaging, and inspiring our community through habitat preservation, science-based conservation, leading-edge research, and interdisciplinary educational programs. As part of the California Phenology Project, citizen scientists at Pepperwood are collecting important phenological information that will be used to inform regional land management practices and conservation strategies under a changing climate.
