📸 Our favorite observations of the week > a Western honey bee phenology at the Somerville Growing Center and a flowering witch-hazel at the Fells ツ
We closed our arthropod survey sites for the year (also removing the tags on the trees so as to not risk tissue damage during the winter) 🔚 However, we photo-documented our sites for the late activities of our buzzing friends.
Just so that you know, the survey season is still very active. We now survey in the Fells every week recording the fall seasonal cycle on fauna and flora (leaf color, flowers, and fruits, etc.). As usual, our data is open-access and gathered in a national database (U.S. National Phenology Network in this case). This means that we make our data count and reach beyond the boundaries of our own communities (and the way it should be). Check the EwA calendar and join one of our outings if you can.
Many of you helped this week and we thank you for that! Check our session logs, and survey info below.
