Wisconsin Wildlife Phenology Calendar--2012
|Other products from CNRED|
Phenology is the study of periodic plant and animal life-cycle events in nature that are influenced by climate and seasonal change, such as wildlife emerging from hibernation, birds nesting or migrating, and flowers blooming.
Aldo Leopold recorded phenological events in Sauk County, Wisconsin beginning in 1936 and later translated some of these observations into his famous book, A Sand County Almanac. The dates in this calendar are based on Leopold's data, data gathered more recently by his daughter, Nina Leopold Bradley, and data collected by other natural resource professionals. This year's calendar focuses on plants and animals featured in A Sand County Almanac.
Past issues are available online under the Special Topics category.
The calendar is a collaboration of the UW-Extension Environmental Resources Center, UW-Madison's Center for Integrated Agricultural Systems, USDA's Natural Resources Conservation Service, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, the Aldo Leopold Foundation, and the Xerces Society for Invertebrate Conservation.
The handling charge will be waived for this item. However, an order for additional items with the calendar will incur a separate shipping and handling fee. (This is because all other items are shipped from a different location.)
If you buy five calendars, you'll get one free. (In other words, any order of more than five calendars will receive a 20% discount in your shopping cart.) Also, please advised that the 40% discount for UW-Extension employees does not apply to calendar purchases.
