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.
Chances are, you’ve seen lots of dandelions popping up recently. But how much do you really know about them? If you’re anything like Urban Programs Lead Educator Max Honch, the answer might be “not much!”
Join Max as he investigates this familiar (yet often overlooked) species by asking questions, making observations, drawing on prior experiences, and doing research.
Bonus: watch Max make dandelion lemonade, get some foraging etiquette tips, and explore a learning method that we use in many of our programs.
We want to hear from you! What seasonal changes have you been noticing in the natural world lately? Share with us in the comments below or on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and LinkedIn using the hashtag #PhenologyFriday!
