Buds, Leaves and Global Warming: What 8 years of data collection tells us about phenology trends at Belchertown High School

March 14—7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

FREE

Come join Louise and her students as they share their findings from tracking and recording data on trees on the BHS campus for the last 8 growing seasons. We ask our trees the big questions – Is the length of the growing season changing with the changing climate? How can we understand what affects the timing of buds opening in Spring and leaves dropping in Fall, for each tree, during each year?  What other weather or biological phenomena track common patterns with our trees? How do our trees compare to others of the same species in other parts of New England?  How do we make use of this information to inform decisions for the future?

with Louise Levy, BHS Science Teacher, MA Conservation Teacher of the Year Thursday
