We’re teaming up again with the University of Maine to participate in this citizen science program that engages volunteers in observing plant and animal phenology, or the study of seasonal life events, like the timing of budburst, first and last sightings of migrating birds, or changing leaf color. For more information, visit the Signs of the Seasons website.
Esperanza Stancioff and Beth Bisson will conduct this free training session. Direct questions via email to Esperanza Stancioff, Extension Educator, or call (207) 832-0343. Registration for this training session is through the Gardens website; just click on the button below.
