Directions to New Spot

Posted: February 6th, 2019 by emmcdonn

Getting to my new Phenology spot is quite easy. Starting from Central Campus you turn onto Carrigan Drive and follow it east to Catamount Drive and enter Centennial Woods from there. Follow the path weaving your way north and than east along the Centennial Brook. After you cross the brook once and continue until you reach a t intersection turn left off of the trail and by the brook is my new spot.

Using the Mammal Tracks and Scat Pocket Guide I believe that some white tailed deer, grey squirrels, dogs, and white footed mouse have moved through my spot.

A list of deciduous tree species I believe were on my site include:

Sugar Maple

American Beech

Red Maple

Northern Red Oak

February 4 (9 PM) – Document wildlife activity at your place by posting photographs of animal tracks and other signs. Using the Winter Twig Identification handout as a guide, make a list of the deciduous trees species you are able to identify at your site, and incorporate some close-up photos of some twigs in your blog. In addition, make a sketch of a twig from your site (labeling the parts), and upload it to your blog.  If you are returning to your site from last fall, describe the phenological changes that have occurred since your last visit. If you have chosen a new site, include a map showing your new location, and provide a written description of how to get to your place.  (2 points)
