Is Climate Change Altering Autumn? Free webinar

Alex Marshall, 21/07/2023

The Nature’s Calendar project has been monitoring seasonal changes in the UK for more than 20 years.

The citizen science project, run by the Woodland Trust, records the timings of key life cycle events for many trees, shrubs, flowers, grasses, birds, insects and amphibians. The information collected is used by scientists around the world to track the impacts of climate change on nature.

With autumn – and the promise of crunchy leaves and conker collecting – on the horizon, there’ll soon be plenty of new seasonal changes to record. In this webinar we’ll cover:

• the meaning of ‘phenology’
• how to record autumn life cycle events for Nature’s Calendar
• tips for recording accurately
• a summary of last autumn's findings
• whether climate change is altering autumn in the UK
• examples of how Nature’s Calendar’s autumn data is being used by scientists.

Date & Time: 24th August at 07:30 PM
