Students will be tracking how quickly trees grow based on local climates and will record the opening of tree and flower buds through the spring, then will put all of their observations into regional and global contexts. In this session,we will use handheld GPS units to determine the location of trees and collect additional data to report to Project Budburst and the Smithsonian Global Tree-Banding Project.
