Family Event – Leaf Watch Trail

Start Date: 28 Mar 2012
End Date: 31 Dec 2012

Family Event – Leaf Watch Trail

Phenology is the science of seasonal changes in the lives of plants and animals- bud burst on trees, flowering seasons, migration and nest-building by birds. By completing our ‘Family Leaf Watch Trail’ you can help do valuable work for the Botanic Gardens. We would like you to help us, by recording on what date the buds or flowers of certain trees and shrubs open, as well as the date butterflies are on the wing. Research shows that climate change has already had a significant impact on the timing of these events in Ireland. The trail will take you to a selection of trees to observe and record your findings. You can do this trail as many times as you like throughout the year. The information you record will be combined with everyone else’s and help us record the impact of climate change at the Botanic Gardens.

Time: 2.00pm

In celebration of Dublin City of Science 2012
