Does climate change affect timings in nature?
If you're in the UK, you can join in the Woodland Trust's Nature’s Calendar and help scientists find out about how the changing climate is impacting nature.
From leaf buds bursting to blackberries ripening, the Woodland Trust wants to know what’s happening in nature in your area. By recording your wildlife sightings on Nature's Calendar, you will be contributing to a long biological record that dates back as far as 1736 and helping build a picture of how nature is responding to climate change.
How to Take Part
To start, look at the list of species and events that you can record. Choose one or more that you can check at least twice a week.
Choose recording locations that you visit regularly.
Look out for the seasonal events that happen to your species. Record the date that you first see each event. You can take a photo and add it to your record. You can view your records instantly on the live maps.

Nature's Calendar helps you to feel more connected to what is going on in nature around you and helps scientists too!
