Phenology is the study of nature’s cycles and how they depend upon and respond to each other. Nature lives by seasons and its calendar doesn’t always correspond with society’s, and it differs from one region to the next.
If you love to keep track of nature, when the first robin appears in spring, when the first frost arrives in autumn and a hundred other events during the seasons, the Phenology Log Book by Diana Tibert is the book you’re looking for.
This log book is formatted to record events in nature for three years. There’s space in the table to record the event, such as the blooming of dandelions, and the date it happens each year for easy comparison. Seven pages at the end of the log book are left blank for notes.
Not ready to buy the book but still want to record nature’s events or want a larger form? We created a printable phenology page formatted in the same style of the book. You can download it and print as many pages as you want and put them in a binder.
This is a great exercise for children to do to connect them with nature and to help them understand the changes in the seasons.
Find the formatted sheet on the Phenology Log Book page.
