For Families: Kids Count!

11 a.m.–4 p.m.
Everett Children’s Adventure Garden

Learn about a teen-led, three-season project to document leaf, flower, and fruit development in native plants growing in the Adventure Garden. Venture out to observe the pussy willow, a harbinger of spring. The data you gather contributes to the National Phenology Network’s efforts to collect, store, and share phenology data and information worldwide.

Citizen Science Day at the New York Botanical Garden is supported by Nature: American Spring LIVE on THIRTEEN.
