Melanie Lenart, a reporter from the Native Science Report, interviewed interim SDI Director Rebecca Edler and Rebecca Montgomery about our Phenology Project. The article gives a wonderful overview of the project, delves into the historic and modern bio-cultural relationship between the Menominee people and the plants we interact with, and looks at how the project influenced the master’s thesis of the first lead researcher on the project, now CMN Geoscience Project Director, Tom Kenote Jr.

SDI is thankful for the interest that Melanie Lenart and the Native Science Report had in our project and for writing this amazing article about the phenology research that is conducted here.
