Greetings from SeasonWatch!
Have you wondered how the natural world may be changing with the changes in climate? In SeasonWatch, we are working with children and adults across India since 2011 to understand seasonality in leafing, flowering, and fruiting in trees.
We are organizing our third bioblitz event for this year, the September Tree Quest, from 13 to 16 September 2019. This is a 4-day, country-wide, rapid assessment of the phenology of common Indian trees.
Participating in the Tree Quest is easy:
Using our app (for Android phone on Google Play) or website, ‘Register’ if you are new to SeasonWatch.
Go outdoors anytime between 13 to 16 September and look at one or more trees (see list here).
Record leaves, flowers, and fruits and upload your ‘casual observations’.
Tree watching is great fun when the experience is shared with others. And so, this tree quest is all about team effort! Do think of ways in which you can involve others. If you are at a school, college or university, you could get a group of students to go out and observe trees and nature. Or you could do something similar in your residential complex or neighbourhood. Please feel free to write back to discuss ideas.
The September Tree Quest will be followed by one more events in December this year. Let’s join hands in understanding how our precious trees respond to the changing seasons!
