Quercus Quest Webinar

Join our Quercus Quest webinar to learn how you can contribute to scientific research by spending 10 minutes a week tracking an oak tree where you live! Your data collected as part of this Nature's Notebook campaign will be used to understand the relationship between climate and leaf and flowering phenology in eastern white oak, bur oak, and their relatives. In this webinar, you'll hear from some of the researchers behind this campaign about how they are using your data, and get an overview of how you can participate in this campaign by tracking an oak tree where you live.
