Phenology in Centennial Woods

Map of Site

Posted: October 23rd, 2017 by hace

KIC Document 0001

Included above is a map of my site. There haven’t been many significant changes in vegetation since my last visit, aside from the trees losing some of their leaves. Because it’s been warmer than usual, most of the plants are still alive and have not shed many leaves. While in the spot, I heard a Pileated Woodpecker in one of the trees. This is the first evidence I’ve seen of any wildlife using my site as a habitat.

Welcome to my spot!

The spot that I chose is located in Centennial Woods near the entrance, along the first bridge you come to on the path. It is at this location:


I chose this spot because since being at UVM, I’ve spent a lot of time running in these woods, which remind me of the woods I ran in back home. This spot in particular is the first place you come to that I think feels removed from the rest of the campus and city, and I feel very calm and peaceful here.

There isn’t too much ground cover here right now– probably partly because of the bridge that takes up a lot of the ground space. There are however some ferns and moss, and some longer grasses as well.

The most common woody species appears to be Norway Maple. However, these species are also found at the spot:

White Oak
Eastern White Pine
American Beech

Here’s some pictures of the spot as of right now. Not many of the leaves have changed since the weather’s been warm, but hopefully they will soon!
