DYK that Bear oak is one of the first species to colonize an area after disturbance, which makes it important for stabilizing and shading bare soils. They are often replaced by taller trees as a patch recovers. Bear oak acorns are a particularly important food source for turkey and grouseThere's always something new to enjoy and learn when recording the seasonal phenomena on our local flora and fauna
To our EwA pheno citScientists interested in the phenology of Bear oak (Quercus ilicifolia), here is the new EwA Phenosheet  👉🏾
Thanks, to Caitlin for developing the content, and to Jen for reviewing it. Thanks to

We just sent it to NPN for revision. And it's now accessible from the EwA Pheno Map.
