Seasonal change is all around us. We see it in the length of a day, in the appearance of a flower, in the flight of a butterfly. Journey North is a long-established, highly respected, citizen science project that explores the interrelated aspects of seasonal change. Journey North uses crowdsourcing to track wildlife migration and seasonal change. People share their own field observations with participants across North America. They track the coming of spring through the migration patterns of monarch butterflies, robins, hummingbirds, whooping cranes, gray whales, bald eagles— and other birds and mammals; the budding of plants; changing sunlight; and other natural events.
The Journey North app allows users to record and submit their observations while they are in the field. It also connects to the website where you will find migration maps, pictures, standards-based lesson plans, activities and information on to help students make local observations and fit them into a global context. Widely considered a best-practices model for education, Journey North is the nation's premiere "citizen science" project for children. The general public is welcome to participate.
Journey North is presented by Annenberg Learner, a division of the Annenberg Foundation.
