NPS: Phenology, the age-old Science of Predicting Bloom Time and Insect Activity


Location: The West Woods Nature Center
9465 Kinsman Road, Novelty, Ohio 44072 in Geauga County

Denise Ellsworth of the OSU Agricultural Research Center will share how phenology tells us what's blooming and what insect activity is in the near future.

Phenology is the study of recurring phenomena and their relationship to weather and climate. Examples of events that have been recorded for centuries:
  • bird migration
  • hunting and gathering seasons
  • plant blooming
  • insect appearance
With an easy-to-use web-based biological calendar, participants will learn how to customize this calendar for garden plants and insect activity.

Directions: Take St. Rt. 87 east from Rt. 306 in Russell Township approx. 2 miles to the park entrance on south side of the road.

No registration is required for this program.
