Plants and Fungi

Plant-Oriented Nature Clubs

By reporting when certain plants bloom and leaf out in spring, Albertans contribute vital information for climate change studies. The speed of spring plant development is controlled mainly by temperature, and there is evidence that warming winter and spring temperatures are already resulting in earlier appearances of flowers. Join us in tracking spring timing at Alberta Plantwatch! Read the latest in their newsletter.

The Alberta SaskatoonWatch tracks blooming saskatoon shrubs with Hands on Alberta and Alberta PlantWatch using NatureLynx. Participating is easy! Simply download NatureLynx™, join the Hands on Alberta group, and find the SaskatoonWatch mission. During the month of May, snap photos of saskatoon buds and flowers in your community and tag them to the mission. Read more about the project on the SaskatoonWatch mission on the NatureLynx website or in this downloadable PDF Info Sheet.
