My phenology site was would be considered to be a woodland. The entire area is covered in trees, and while there is wildlife activity, it is quite subtile. As observed in the early fall there are a lot of ground dwelling plants like ferns in the area.

What has changed since I went last was the amount of snow in the area. Due to recent warmer temperatures, there had been a lot of snow melting in the area. My phenology site is on a hill, causing the water to run down the hill, causing a m muddy area. When I first visited the phenology spot I chose, it was way more populated with plants as it was the early autumn. There was way more plant ground cover and there was a more intense canopy, causing the area to be shady. Now the ground is covered in snow and there is no plant life.
