Nature's Clock: Fern Glen Phenology Trail Walk


Join Cary Institute’s Vicky Kelly for a guided walk exploring the life cycles of plants and animals.

Have you wondered what determines when flowers bloom? When butterflies emerge from their cocoons? Or when trees drop their leaves? Answers can be found in the science of phenology.

Vicky will showcase the Phenology Trail in our Fern Glen, a unique landscape devoted to the preservation and enjoyment of native plants, and talk about citizen science opportunities.

Participants are encouraged to wear long pants and hiking boots, and bring drinking water.

Free + open to all. Reservations required.
