Undraa's Phenology

Event Map

Posted: November 8th, 2018 by uirvin


I noticed since my last post that many more plants have become dead. The flora is overwhelmingly brown and the sand/dirt was wet from the recent days of rain; I sunk into each step i took. Despite the colder and harsher weather I still heard some birds chirping and leaves rustling with random fauna. I noticed more trash and litter at my spot near the brook so other people must have been here recently too.


Phenology haiku:


I sink into dirt

All the leaves cover the ground

yet the birds still chirp

Birds eye view of my spot

Here is a drawing of an aerial view of my phenology spot. Since I have last been my my spot, the weather has changed dramatically. It has gotten significantly more windy, colder in temperature, and its even snowed once or twice. This has led to a drastic change in the vegetation surrounding my spot. The leaves of nearby trees has fallen, other flora has turned stiff and brown, and the dirt seemed harder. There also were no signs of wildlife in the area. The brook also seemed at a higher water level due to the recent rainfall.

Welcome to Centennial Woods!

Posted: October 9th, 2018 by uirvin

I chose the meadow/brook in Centennial Woods. If you follow the trail you should come to an opening with a bridge and the stream the flows through it. I chose this site because I felt really connected to it when I went for an environmental science lab. I loved the way it transitions from a forest to a meadow abundant with flowers and butterflies. Most of the species there are invasives. Some of the include asters, poison ivy, norway maple, buckthorn, ferns & milkweed.
