About Our Plots

The College of Menominee Nation phenology plot project is the result of a collaboration with University of Minnesota and CMN. The purpose of this project is to monitor twelve indicator species plants with cultural significance to the tribe. Under the guide of the lead technician, students collect environmental data from plant sites including temperature and moisture. This data serves the larger purpose of informing climate change models and supporting the goals of the Menominee Indian Tribe of Wisconsin, as well as the broader scientific community.
