PlantWatch Newfoundland and Labrador
MUN Botanical Garden is the coordination centre for the Newfoundland and Labrador component of the national Plantwatch program. This program enlists volunteer observers to record the timing of blooming dates (phenology) of early flowering native plants. The data collected provincially and nationally can be used as indicators of environmental changes in the areas where the plants are growing.
Please visit the Canadian PlantWatch website for more information about the program.
