Indiana Backyard Observers
Become a Backyard Observer
Indiana Backyard Observers help us document seasonal changes in plants. Observers monitor the same plants from week to week throughout the year. There is some up-front effort to get set up, but once that is done, observing takes just a few minutes per plant.
We want you to feel confident with observing so we'll walk you through each step of the 5 -step set-up process. Every thing you need is right here. Check out the Backyard Observer Quick Start Guide to see an overview of the whole process.
