Citizen Science - Project Budburst
Did you know that you can help collect important climate change data this spring? Through this new project, Project BudBurst
, you can provide data you take yourself on the timing of leafing and flowering of trees and flowers in your area. This national
campaign focuses on trees and flowers which are native
across the country. By recording the timing of the leafing and flowering
of these species each year, scientists can learn about the
climatic characteristics in a region over time.
Project Budburst is a new project developed by the Chicago Botanic Garden, Windows to the Universe, and other partners.
Project BudBurst is ideal for teachers and students, families interested
in participating in a science project, scouts and 4-H groups, gardening
clubs, botanical gardens - anyone or any group with an interest in
contributing to a research study.
So join us this spring and be part of the Project BudBurst community!
