Tree Spotters Citizen Science Program: Basic Training


Saturday, April 20, 2019, 10:30am to 12:00pm

Repeats every week every Saturday until Sat Apr 27 2019


Hunnewell Building Lecture Hall or Weld Hill Lecture Hall, Arnold Arboretum, Boston

With nearly 4,000 different kinds of plants represented in the Arboretum's living collections, every day presents rich opportunities to see something new. If you enjoy learning about plants and their unique characteristics, you can contribute to science as a participant in our Tree Spotters program. This citizen science project opens a window into the Arboretum's phenology: the timing of natural events, such as the leafing out and flowering of trees in the spring and changing foliage colors in the fall. Your observations will assist Arboretum scientists in their studies of the effects of a changing climate on plants.

Each new Tree Spotter must first attend one Basic Training class (Module 1), followed by at least one Beyond the Basics class (Module 2). Please register for both modules if you would like to participate in this program.
