Phenology is the study of change through the year in an ecosystem. The phenology study at Nez Perce NHP consists mainly of surveying and collecting data about plants. It is a wonderful way to get out and experience the park while conducting citizen science. Phenology is important for our natural resource staff to understand the big picture of what is happening in the park ecosystem. Hours are flexible, but a schedule is required to ensure accurate data capturing. Volunteers would work in a solitary setting after the initial orientation.
