- Nature Net's Earth Alive! program is great for discussing and recording phenology with young children. There are pages geared toward Madison-area classrooms and the general public.
- For you birdwatchers, eBird is a database compiled by the Cornell Lab of Ornithology and the National Audubon Society to track bird migrations around the U.S. Participate in this year's Great Backyard Bird Count, going on this weekend!
- The National Phenology Network encourages citizen scientists around the U.S. to observe and record phenology they see. Sign up to be an Observer and you will learn how to observe, what to observe, and where to record your observations.
Nature journaling can easily be done in your own backyard or schoolyard. However, if you don't have access to a natural space, or just want some variety, consider doing a nature observation walk at any of the Nature Net sites. Many of these parks and nature centers would be happy to point out phenological events for you to observe while you are visiting.
