Unfortunately I have been sick and stuck in bed with a fever the past week or so…  However after a super fun visit at the health center I felt well enough to make it out to my site again for a nice while so heres what I experienced… Enjoy! 


Map and Site Update

Posted: October 22nd, 2018 by wvanderl

Over the past few weeks my phenology location has experienced a visible change in terms of canopy cover. The leaves have begun to fall off of many of the trees as it is getting cooler fast.

In terms of wildlife, I have seen a couple squirrels around the site, interacting with the trees. In addition, I have spotted some smaller birds located in the upper branches of the trees.

Attached is my hand drawn map… enjoy!

Introduction to my Phenology blog!

For my phenology location I have selected the Redstone Pines Area… To find this beautiful spot just head over to Redstone Hall and look across the street, it wont be hard to spot. I chose this area as it is peaceful, and has an interesting composition of larger trees and small brush that will be interesting to analyze alongside the wildlife in the area. Redstone Pines is mostly composed of grass and trees, however there are patches of small woody plants and saplings scattered below the tree cover…

The trees within my phenology site include…

Sugar maple, Norway maple, and Eastern white pine.

The smaller woody plants include…

Sugar/Norway maple saplings, and boxelder.
