USA National Phenology Network

The USA National Phenology Network (USA-NPN) is a consortium of individuals and organizations focused on monitoring the influence of climate on the phenology of plants, animals, and landscapes through the collection, sharing, and scientific application of phenological data. The USA-NPN seeks to serve both science and society by broadening and deepening our understanding of phenology and its relationship to the changing environment. The USA-NPN encourages phenology monitoring by people of all ages and backgrounds as a means to explore and better understand the pace of our ever-changing world. Nature Up North is working as a partner with the USA-NPN to achieve a variety of goals, including working to properly monitor phenology, engaging members in phenology observation, and using the USA-NPN as an archive for phenological data.
