National Phenology Network

The USA National Phenology Network encourages individuals to monitor the impacts of climate change on plants and animals in the United States.

The network harnesses the power of people and the Internet to collect and share information, providing researchers with far more data than they could collect alone.  The USA National Phenology Network brings together citizen scientists, government agencies, non-profit groups, educators and students of all ages to monitor the impacts of climate change on plants and animals in the United States. The network harnesses the power of people and the Internet to collect and share information, providing researchers with far more data than they could collect alone

The USA National Phenology Network (USA-NPN) monitors the influence of climate on the phenology of plants, animals, and landscapes. We do this by encouraging people to observe phenological events like leaf out, flowering, migrations, and egg laying, and by providing a place for people to enter, store, and share their observations. We also work with researchers to develop tools and techniques to use these observations to support a wide range of decisions made routinely by citizens, managers, scientists, and others, including decisions related to allergies, wildfires, water, and conservation

USA NPN has developed Nature's Notebook, a national plant and animal phenology observation program.
