The student internship is being offered through the Sustainable Development Institute (SDI) of the College of Menominee Nation (CMN), funded through USDA – NIFA “Plant Phenology” grant project. This internship incorporates components of forest ecology and plant phenology along with development of a Citizen based phenology trail along the Learning Path on the East side of the CMN Keshena, WI campus. The faculty member and student intern will work together to coordinate a community input session and use that input to begin establishing observation “stations” that can be used to observe and record plant pheno phases from April through October each year. The work will build on a phenology manual developed by a previous student intern. Additionally, the student will work with phenology team members to become familiar with candidate plant locations and pheno-phases located on the CMN training plot.
