Fall Color Change Monitoring
You're invited to become a mountain plant monitor this fall! New in 2008 AMC is linking up with the national and regional phenology networks by using the same species and protocols to ensure information can be used across programs.
The AMC mountain fall foliage monitoring program is a way for hikers to help collect needed information on the onset of fall color change and subsequent leaf-drop across the northern Appalachian Mountains. This information linked with climate and weather trends will help us understand how mountain plants respond to climate change.
How to participate:
Questions? email us.
The above datasheets have been modified for use by hikers and are focused on fall foliage monitoring only. For more information on how to participate in the National Phenology Network go to the web site.
