Introducing Budburst and Community Science
Students learn how community scientists have contributed to the field of phenology and what Budburst data can tell us about the relationship between plant phenology and climate change.
Teaching Ecological Mismatches
Teach students how climate change can disrupt interspecies relationships via its effects on phenology.
Phenophase Scavenger Hunt
Engage your students in our 'Phenology and Climate' project with these outdoor scavenger hunts.
Phenophase Matching Activities
Students match images of annual plant life cycle events to phenophase descriptions. Great for classrooms getting started on our 'Phenology and Climate' project.
