Throw Back Thursday (TBT):
In a few days it will be September. Plants and animals are changing as fall approaches. What will we see outdoors in the month ahead?
Phenology is the study of the times when natural phenomena recur. Back in 2008-2009 Chuck Tague and I collaborated on a year-long phenology series for western Pennsylvania. His website held much more information than mine but, alas, it disappeared when Apple discontinued web.me.com. My series remains as a collection at the Western PA Phenology tab at the top of this blog.
What can we expect in early September? Click here for the phenology forecast.
