GLIFWC Phenology Calendar
Instructions: Phenology refers to the timing of seasonal changes. GLIFWC Climate Change staff are interested in collecting observations of seasonal events from across the Ceded Territories all year long. Hopefully, if we get enough observations we can start to make some connections between what we are seeing and what is happening with climate change. Your observations can be anything from wildlife observations to anything that relates to seasonality: when you notice buds bursting; the first snowfall; an animal with young; a thawing lake; the first spearing or ice fishing of the year; or an unusual weather event, such as a large thunderstorm or snowstorm. Be as specific as you can about your observation. The more submissions the better! If you would like to submit photos with your observations, you can email photos to
Example: Catfish Lake, Eagle River WI; GLIFWC office, Odanah WI; could also enter exact coordinates (e.g. 46.6025° N, 90.6825° W)
Examples: First sugar maple trees tapped, white-tailed deer in rut, black bear spotted with two cubs, heavy thunderstorm with 2" of rain, first mosquito of the year, first walleye speared on Mille Lacs Lake, leaf buds breaking on paper birch trees, first thunderstorm, first sandhill cranes, etc.
