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! Learn more here.
This week, Urban School Programs Coordinator Celina Steiger investigates some of the seasonal changes and variations she’s been noticing in the rhododendrons throughout her Seattle neighborhood. (Including a very satisfying rhododendron bud dissection and identification!)
We want to know what you’re observing in the natural world right now – whether it’s on (socially distant!) explorations outside or just from the view from your window! Share with us on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and LinkedIn using the hashtag #PhenologyFriday!
