Melting snow and budding trees, what other signs of spring do you see?
Scientists use observation to collect and record data, enabling them to construct and then test hypotheses and theories leading to new discoveries about the world in which we live. Aldo Leopold, his family and others have kept meticulous records for over a century describing events such as budding trees, flowering plants, returning migratory birds and the calls of songbirds at dawn. What's more, these records have helped us better understand how our climate is changing.
You too can start your own nature journal and observe and record the events you experience in nature... all you need is a notebook and a writing utensil and you can discover and learn more about the wonders of the natural world.
Afterall, as Aldo Leopold said..."Keeping records enhances the pleasure of the search and the chance of finding order in the meaning of these events."
