Phenology Project

Peacock Park Phenology Trail is located near the beach at the southern end of Mirror Lake. Signs explain how to observe the phenology of specific trees. Students from the National Sports Academy, Northwood School and Lake Placid High School are involved. Some classes walk the trail every week to collect data on 23 individual trees. Members of the general public can walk the phenology trail and log their observations on the Nature's Notebook app. Those interested in participating can learn how to collect data on tree phenology and log their observations by visiting the new Peacock Park Phenology Trail in Lake Placid, NY.
