Phenology refers to the timing and seasonality of events in the life cycles of other species such as fowering, migration, budding and seeding. There is a growing interest in the study of phenology in the context of the Anthropocene, the current geological era where humans and human technologies are the predominant force shaping environmental conditions.

The Phenological Clock Project is a design tool for displaying life cycle events of local urban organisms. The resultant clocks re-present time as seasonally interdependent processes. In this workshop, participants will explore the phenology of species in their local environment as they are guided through the process of developing phenology clocks for their localities. The Phenology Clock project is a collaborative project developed at the Environmental Health Clinic, NYU.
