AMC needs your help to document alpine flowering and fruiting times across the Northeast high peaks this spring and summer and especially during June.

Tutorials: How to Monitor: 
  • Hike to any Northeastern alpine area (above treeline).
  • Locate targeted alpine plants (see field guides). Be sure to STAY ON THE TRAIL.
  • Record on data sheet: date, detailed location including sketching a map, and which flower/fruit stage(s) the target plant(s) is displaying.
  • Adopt-A-Peak and repeat - Consider monitoring at the same peak or trail locations over the season providing valuable multiple observations of the same plants through time. Learn more about Adopt-A-Peak>>
Suggested Alpine Areas to Hike and Monitor:
