Tracking climate change in your own backyard

Want to help track climate change? Sign up to be a Citizen Scientist with the National Phenology Network! Choose one or more plants that a) is on their list, and b) grows in your yard (or somewhere you hang out regularly), then use their tools and instructions to report on its growth. Sounds like a fun project for homeschoolers or, really, anyone with kids. Links and more information available from a Wilderness Society blog post.
