While our in-person community programs may currently be closed, we’ve been busy hatching new ideas to explore the world around us together and are excited to announce our new series, Phenology Friday! Each week, one of IslandWood’s educators will be sharing a phenological highlight. Watch the video of their explorations and then share your own observations with us using #PhenologyFriday!

Want to know what causes flowering plants to bloom? Curious about the pollination process?
This week’s edition of Phenology Friday is led by Pei-Hsun Tsai (also known as Eve!), a former IslandWood summer programs intern and current research assistant at the Outdoor Education Research Office of the National Academy for Research in Taiwan. Eve chose IslandWood for her graduate school internship in order to further develop her skills as an educator and advocate for outdoor education, an experience that serve her today as she works to promote the inclusion outdoor education in Taiwan’s national school curriculum.
Check out this video to meet Eve and learn more about the flowering plants she’s been noticing on the National Academy park grounds!
