With spring right around the corner, it’s a wonderful time to reflect on the changes you are seeing all around you! Phenology is the study of the timing of events and phenomena in relation to changes in season and climate. Making a phenology wheel is a creative endeavor that can help you track these things.
At this workshop, Lexi will talk about the use of phenology wheels to hone your naturalist skills and deeply connect with your surroundings, as well as discuss some changes we are currently witnessing locally. Participants will learn how to set up their own phenology wheels and begin tracking their personal observations. All artistic skill levels are welcome!
We will provide paper and limited art supplies, but feel free to bring your favorites from home. We recommend pencils, colored pencils, watercolors, paper, sketchbooks, compasses, and rulers – or any other supplies and mediums that suit you!
This event is limited to 15 people, registration is required. Parking is very limited, and carpooling is encouraged. Please dress for the weather and bring a water bottle. Participants may also wish to bring a packed lunch, camp chair, binoculars, or any other goodies that will make for a comfortable afternoon outdoors. The Land Trust will provide light refreshments.
PLEASE NOTE: This workshop will take place on location at the Lyre Conservation Area; participants must be capable of walking approximately 2 miles round trip on a wide gravel trail with mostly flat surfaces and one steep downhill/uphill climb. A wagon will be available to assist with transporting chairs and other supplies.
