Virginia Key North Point - Upon completing the restoration process of the VKNP beach, a protected area, we have been monitoring the growth and development of what we planted. We are interested by what our data can tell us regarding phenological changes occurring in Miami - an area many scientists consider especially vulnerable to many environmental threats. In conjunction with Project Budburst, we hope to contribute data that scientists can use to better understand the changes happening around us.
Project BudBurst - A third-party, nationwide initiative by which we log our phenological data. Participants make careful observations of the timing of leafing, flowering, and fruiting phases of plants (plant phenophases) at each season of the year.
