Mountain Hemlock Phenology Project

The MHPP asks students to monitor spring bud development and snow depth in the mountain hemlock forest of the Crater Lake Caldera. Students first make predictions in the classroom, then make observations in the park, and then return to the classroom to analyze the dataset on a ArcGIS online map.
