Join Midwest Conservation Dogs, Inc. and Waukesha County Land Conservancy for our 2020 Phenology Photo Challenge!


What is Phenology? It is nature's calendar - the study of cyclic and seasonal natural phenomena, especially in relation to climate and plant and animal life.


Throughout the month of April, we will be offering weekly challenges for you to complete whether in your backyard, on a neighborhood walk, or out in nature. We want to see your findings!


Follow along for instructions, to join in on the fun and learn more about phenology in the process.


Spring leaf out is spreading up the country up to 3 weeks early in some locations this year. Get outdoors and observe the deciduous trees, shrubs, conifers, evergreens, grasses, wildflowers and herbs around you, and snap a photo of any leaf out or budburst that you notice.
